    I decided to do something different this time around this is time. basicly this bike once built will be given back to the previous owner. he was a nice kid and he loved this bike. always had issues with it then one day some thugs decided to steam it. when they could not get the lock undone they kicked his wheels in and his new freshly installed chrome fenders. his mother came in and bought him a new cruiser then donated his old bike because it was going to cost too much to repair. well like i said once this bike is done win or loose i am giving it back to him so that explains the name "pay it back." i will post pics of the bike (what is left of it) but basicly it is your run of the mill early 80's schwinn cruiser frame.

    Re: PAY IT BACK

    now begins the fun. decided to start by removing the paint and see where i am at with that. however i already basicly have the color chosen that would be raw metal. why i chose a schwinn frame to do this to i won't understand sanding in the tight crevices is really a ummmm well difficult.

    Re: PAY IT BACK

    fold your paper over twice and shove it in(takes a long time and youll have to change the paper alot but it will get about 98% of the paint off even in the tight spots the really hard spot is the kickstand bracket)
    or option #2 harbor freight spot blaster with baking soda(huge mess and wear a respirator!
    and wait to see this one together!

    Re: PAY IT BACK

    i wanted to dive into the sanding and polishing of the frame cause i think between that and the fork will take the longest.

    That is a cool looking fork is that the threadless kind that can just get cut down?

    Also what is the brake fluid there for?

    Quality over quantity because quantity will give you a headake.HEHEHE :mrgreen:
