    The seat is off the the upholstery guy this weekend. Its the supposedly rare smooth white Stingray seat, but the vinyl is cracking to pieces so I figure its not big loss to the eBay price gougers.
    I'm having the seat done in white, and picking up some sparkly white Schwinn grips over the weekend as well; I'm shopping for a Schwinn sissy bar.
    Molding the frame and paint are right around the corner you guys!

    Ok ok I took a month off for vacation, work trips and actual bike riding. Finally took the time to sand the original paint, body-filler the tube joints and get some automotive primer on the frame. Its still a little cool in the garage so I'll let the primer dry for a few days before laying on the blue pearl paint.

    Glad to see you back in action and progress on the bike. With good weather, looks like you should have time to finish her/him off by the deadline. RaT oN!

    New decals are on and really complete the bike. Still need to put the head badge on and a prettier seat post, then find a place for final glamour shots!

    Got the silver Schwinn head badge on this morning, along with a painted seat post. The white seat is obviously not going to make it by tomorrow, so the blue seat from my Fastback will have to do.

    I like that seat on it anyway...
    If you had a white seat you would need white grips...

    Luke, that's probably true isn't it. Hmm.
