    Front rack is bent pretty bad, we will see if it straightens. The plan is to clean it all up but I am REALLY concerned about rubbing the graphics off as I know they get chalky over time...

    The chain guard graphics always seem to be the ones that rub off easily. I just use a sponge with dish soap and don't rub too hard, then wax it with car wax a few times to bring the Schwinn paint out, but always go easy on the chain guard.

    I have a front rack coming from a 57 Jaguar, if you will be interested.

    Schwinny. Don't even try to clean the seat post decal with anything harsher than a wet sponge or a dry micro fiber cloth.
