    Usually we start with the frame first, however I wanted to use this color on some rims so started there first. Krylon Khaki painted steel drop rims with black painted New Departure rear hub and Schwinn Script front hub. Original double butted spokes all cleaned and ready to go. Tires are 26 X 2.125 Red Grand Tycoon reproductions. Next the frame....?????

    Straight Bar Schwinn with a lot of pitting. I had this sand blasted several years ago; lots of filling and sanding to do.

    Nice looking bike, but don't forget to attach the coaster brake strap to the brake arm. Hate to see the hub come apart on you!
