Looks nice. I've painted a few kids' bikes and a couple of thrift store three speeds for elderly neighbors who just wanted something to ride to the store, and the other post is right--rattlecan enamel just isn't that durable. I don't know if clear coat would put a hard coat on it, but I remember reading something years ago that you should probably check: Either lacquer will soften enamel or enamel will soften lacquer, I forget which. Before I sprayed lacquer over that frame, I'd test it on a piece of scrap to see if it makes the paint fall off.
Shoot, now I want to repaint my singlespeed.
