My New Ride

Found this at an Antique shop. its in good shape. Ready for my total rehab and spit shine. Its a 74 in Opaque Blue. Need to relace wheels, new cables and housing, clean up and find a good seat.

Even the Generater works. I think I am going to just shine that up and keep it on the bicycle.

Very Nice! Everybody Needs Powder Blue Schwinn.



First thing to do is get rid of the left over hardware from the baby seat.

Hobby shop: Testors has a blue that's a good starting point, then start mixing in a little bit of white. Go easy, have fun.

Nice bike - you probably got a great deal on it.

You've scored an amazing find. It even has the original Campy Gran Turismo RD!

Niiiiice!

Try Testors #1108 to start, I used that on my Opaque Blue Paramount with some mixing.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I dont want to touch it up a lot but there are a few rough spots on the seat stays that need it bad.
