    Thanks Sensor, I noticed that when I pre-viewed but was un-able to fix it. Pretty good shot also, I thought. Glad I wasn't in my old home in So. Sac. Cuz I'll guarantee you the weather was far too cold and humid for paint! I remember! Later & PEACE!!!! 8)

    O.K. all parts have been un-masked.[​IMG]
    Springer and chainguard are finished ![​IMG]
    No its not a bad pic. My striping sucked like a hoover! I will wait to talk to a freind of mine who knows what I'm doing wrong. In the meantime I can mount tires and tubes.[​IMG]
    I will try to get the striping right for the frame tonight. Later & PEACE!!!!! :oops:

    practice, practice,practice!!!! i can pull great lines on cars and flat surfaces but starting on 1" tubbing is super hard to get clean line(nothing to brace your fingers on!) if it make you feel better it took me about 14 times to get the stripes right on my forks!!!!!!!!! :roll:
    looks great so far!

    Hey man, I really like what you've done here. I dig it, and in my opinion... the pin striping you did looks spot on. I like how you used some classic style schwinn graphics on the bike too.

    the bike looks killer, congrats
