80's schwinn buld up
Just wanted to post this up because I am having such a blast building this bike up for a friend. He let me have creative control of this build and have gotten to sharpen my skills in the paint department.
It started its life at an interesting store, pretty sure I found where all stolen bikes in the Denver area go to. We picked it up for 150 with everything. Stripped and started taking it down to steel. When we got it it was Hot orange, Hot Yellow back to hot orange.
After stripping it it was decided to do a green yellow metalic but the key was to show the original steel through the paint. I think it turned out pretty good.
And the close up where you can see the steel through the logo.
Clear Coat goes on tomorrow and should really make it all pop.
Will post up the progress as we finnish the build.
Whats the consensus from the BF
