Really cool paint effect there, care to share the technique?

* I think the mag sprocket is coolest Schwinn circles second best
simple prosses. get a storage tote/ bucket. large enough for your frame / parts. then pick out some rattle spray bomb cans. in colors you think would look good together. let them sit in the sun warm up. fill the tote/ bucket. with regular tape water. shake the cans up. like I said simple. now spay paint circles / swirls in the water. spray till the color in water. is the shade you like. put on gloves dunk the frame / parts in the tote/ bucket.. shake the parts under water. wait a few minuets swish a way the paint on top of water. pull out frame/ parts. let it dry some were. then take a razer blade cut off the extra paint on bottom bracket hole and head tube.(I Skipped taping those off) so just cut the hole/ tube back open. then do the same for drop out axle slots.

after it's dry build frame up/ install parts. then go ride it!

the paint can / cap looked the wright color when I bought it. but after spraying it over the chrome, it's lighter than the front hub. still looks nice. gives it a foe / fake anodize look.

Looking at those starting out pictures. Breaks my heart to see a bike in that kind of shape. Even if you don't keep it, glad it's getting fixed up.

Heck with the shortage going on you may even turn a profit if you sell.
