La Mesa, California, 1959
We were taught the same thing right here in the New Ninety States when I was a kid. The reasoning was that you could see the cars coming and avoid them.
It was fortunate for me that I had a minor acquaintance with Jobst in the mid seventies when I was a young bike mechanic with a much-too-big 26" Bob Jackson frame. Jobst paid me a decent price for...
Forty degrees and foggy when I left home this morning. Fifty-nine and sunny when I got back 3 1/2 hours later.
Put it up on the "Frame Doesn't Fit" thread and see if anything equally interesting comes your way.
Great selection of photos non-fixie !
Now that's classic! Pretty well sums up my thoughts.
Well put iab.
Now you're chasing the right rabbit! But the heater is probably overkill. A 150 watt incandescent light bulb might just do the job. You don't want to cook the paint, just bake it slowly.
I've heard good things about these paints that are specifically matched to vintage Schwinn colors:

Just in the last few posts we get a geographical history of Rhode Island, an Australian travelogue, the back woods of New Jersey, and cocoa, peanut butter, granola balls!
Nice! A couple of treasures. That Silca pump makes my seventies Silca look downright modern, and Pino Moroni is the stuff of legends!
Here's mine, found at a bike swap for $5; aluminum Cinelli...

Yes, I will facilitate if needed. 4one599zero56oh9
Am I the only man here with more bikes and more shoes than his wife?
Cycling shoes w/ spd cleats, cycling shoes w/ road cleats, vintage cycling shoes, 3-pin ski boots, mountaineering boots,...
This was my mother's childhood sewing machine. She is now 91 years old. Unfortunately it requires a needle with a very...
Hah! I had completely forgotten that bit of wisdom.
Thanks for bringing back old memories, long lost!
I believe that hanging out for any length of time on this forum is accepted as clinical evidence of infection.
Very pretty! The red/orange and black tires look right at home on this bike.
I agree! I've taken to wearing my painting respirator while using paint stripper.
This one was original factory paint, early seventies Motobecane Champion Team from a very salty environment.
This one is theoretically on the way to me.
If there is a "Mission-of-Mercy" award this poor bike should be in the...
