    You've got quite a "pair to draw to" there...! Couple of sweet Stings. Another one crosses the Finished line!

    It's rattle can Krylon, the Metallics line. Cool paint and lays on pretty easy. Lots of cool colors and no silver base oat needed. Just get a good primer base coat nice and smooth then apply multiple light coats and top with Krylon Gloss clear. Just watch the clear with decals/stickers it is not friendly to all of those, test first.

    That's a clean machine! It looks "showroom."

    Thanks everyone, this was a no frills build that I really enjoyed collecting the parts for and putting together. Was able to let my son get it out for a nice ride the other day as the weather here was surprising warm and dry, very uncommon for December. My sons review of the ride, smooth, easy to pedal, and quick.

    What's amazing is even sitting in front of the house, the attention these old Banana seat bikes get, people driving by slow up to look, people walking by many times stop to ask questions, or tell me a story if I am out there, what a fun hobby this is!
