    Yes, glass beads.
    You might be able to find a welding shop with a blast cabinet that could do it for you. With most of it done already, it might not cost very much at all.

    I think I got just about all of it. But thank you. If I ever do a bare-metal build again, I will definitely look into that method.

    Frame looks good. That Schwinn paint is not easy to get through.

    I do like it, but I’m thinking I might use this one instead ...

    The difference for me it the space around the tire.

    Fork # 1 makes the wheel look too skinny IMO.

    I'll probably be usin a fork like that on my build.
    Because, right now, that's what I have. I got some chrome cantilevers for it.

    You've got that Schwinn camelback frame looking sweet already. Have fun!

    Moto bars with a slingshot stem.
    I also had to trim the steer tube a little.

    I thought I ordered the straight-bar script decals, but I guess not. Even though it’s not true to the Racer’s decal specifications, I think I’ll place these on the top bar.

    Doing a little work on the drive train while the linseed oil dries. Replaced the stock 19t cog for a 13t and I’m trying a 28t sprocket up front. [​IMG]

    I think I am running the same chain ring/rear cog combo on mine. I really like how it looks. This bike is really looking great!

    I had a similar set up on another bike ( 13-25 ). While I liked it for gravel paths, I think the 28 will make it more versatile.

    Question for linseed oil experts... I think I laid it on too thick, because it’s still tacky after 5 days... please advise.
