Quick, simple build. All the original parts not retained for the project will be saved. The paint is really nice so I'm keeping that. If I don't like how it turns out, the bike can always be put right back to original.That little dude is in great shape. What changes do you have in mind?
OA is great stuff! I bought a big underbed storage container and it will hold a 20" frame nicely. Cleaned up the crunchy little Schwinn Tornado below with it last fall.Try a mild oxalic acid, citic acid, or vinegar dip, it will neutralize the rust where the paint is dinged and you can polish the rest of the paint. Keep it waxed and it will look great.
Will also clean up all your chrome bits, dont do the galvanized though.
I had something like that as my first bike with training wheels.
