    O.K. Pretty obvious what it is, but for the heck of it. 62 Schwinn frame, model unknown, will be able to nail down more when the many layers of paint are stripped off and ser. # becomes ledgible. The gauntlet has been thrown! Later & PEAC[​IMG]E!!!!! :mrgreen:

    You know what, a lot of people say that, but if you go back and look in the actual Schwinn catalogues you wo'nt find them except for 62. There were a lot of frames similar to this style with the exception being , the double bars come up from the rear drop-outs and end at the seat-post tube. Then another set spans across to the head tube. This frame on the other hand has the double bars contiguously from rear drop-outs to head-tube. check it out you will see what I'm talkling about. Later & PEACE!!! :mrgreen:

    It was a thought!

    You are a Jimmy Shine fan I'm guessing. LOL Sun. Mornings are my fishing times. No bites this morning, but the weather was cool and my cigar was fresh so all in all, a good way to start the day. I used a " high build " primer in white to start. This stuff costs a little more but saves lots of time! Therefore worth the extra. [​IMG] [/im[​IMG]g]

    You're right man, prep is everything. Good primer is not a luxury. Fine looking primer job.
