    RM, now looking at the finished bike, I like the balance you have even more. It looks so right between the big fenders, skirt guard, tank and chain guard. The colors are just the right shade and "age". Then there is the details... Nice Job!

    Thanks RM! :happy:. Yeah, it took a lot of planning to get the ying and yang right. Glad it was noticeable. Per request, Dr T wanted to see the paint difference between CT Schwinn and my Veloster ("Vitamin C" pearlescent metallic) so I took a shot in the garage under fluorescent lights (maybe...

    Odd Job, you really nailed the patina look with this one.:cool2: Plus the stance and extras make me think it looks like an old racer 50s that you fixed up, just enough;). From the video and seeing you ride at the swap meet, it looks like a great riding bike too, Sweet!! Looking forward to...

    Very Cool!! I really like the multiple fender struts. The balance of the tank to the fenders, fender skirt and chain guard is perfect. Can't wait to see it all together. Nice Job!

    Thanks RM, it really is fun, again surprisingly :bigsmile:. Its the first low seat that I can ride with being way back. My knees aren't too bent at the top of the crank stroke either. I guess there was a plan there, just not sure it would come together. Yeah Guys, I was originally going to...

    SaltHammer Savannah Sand Flats Silver King (1935 Monark Silver King) - Aug01 FINISHED! What A Blast!

    Wow! Your bike looks really cool. I like the floating nanner! My wife likes the salt shaker caps and big headlight. Its got quite the stance and presence. Bare metal is always the best. So many doodads to ponder... I can't help but think of one of my all time favorite cars, Peter Brock's...

    Thanks Guys:), yeah it helps that my wife likes them too. She puts no space limits on how many there are around ;). The Paint came in and I did a quick test. From left to right is the Firemist orange without any primer and only one coat compared to the cap. Then the chainring with the...

    CT Schwinn: Banana, Banana

    Thanks for all the likes and paint advice, it helps.:) Since I can't bead blast the shiny metal tank and chrome chainring, I plan to rough them up with sand paper and then use some self etching primer to hopefully make the paint stick better. Plan to use a second coat of white primer like the...
