i found a schwinn varsity and,the green paint was fading but i wasnt thinking about that. i just liked that it had a heavy GAS PIPE FRAME. Icould beat this frame with a hammer and,it might not dent.
anyway,i was in the shed and,saw like 7 cans of spray paint.next thing i know i have that varsity stripped and,sanded.
i wouldnt have thought that cans of spray paint would give a good finish, but its not bad. not perfect, but better than the flaking paint that was on it. im gonna CLEAR COAT IT.then take the gear off of my grand sports and,kit it out.
this will be my everyday riding bike. im happy because,i just didnt feel good riding on my fathers little tour de france bikes with my 320lb rump. but now,with the good old schwinn gas pipe frame,i dont have to worry about breaking anything. as soon as it dries,i will post some pics.
i know im not the first person to spray paint a bike. but i am so happy with the looks of it. and now i can just bomb away without worrying about ruining one of those little 20 pound bikes. the 40 pound schwinn should hold up just fine.
