Repainted my old Schwinn touring bike a month or so ago. Took it back to nearly the original factory color:

I used some left over Rustoleum Ultra-Cover orange paint. I had not even thought about it, but I did hit the original factory color pretty close:

If only I could get one of those for $196 now. When I was a kid I borrowed one of those, sans consent, from my evil 'stepmother' and took it to the mall in Concord. The bike never made it home and I got my ass whoooooop'd

I think I paid $202 plus sales tax for it back in the day. I put over 3000 miles on it in the last year since repainting/rebuilding it.

4Crawler, that's sweet, those bar grips are awesome, it really helps when you have more area to rest your palm on. Funny how a decent road bike will set you back a few grand today.

Yes, those grips are decent, they are Ergon GP1. I had converted the bike from drop bars to a flat bar back in the mid-80s along with MTB style brakes and shifters and adding a triple crankset. The bike gets ridden about 50% on dirt and gravel bike paths and fire roads:


I did just build a new cyclo-cross type bike for riding on the harder trails as I found that the old Schwinn sort of ran out of traction on dirt trails at around 18%-20% grades. I used to have some old Specialized knobby 27" cross tires for the bike, but those are pretty much dry rotted now and nobody makes any decent cross tires in 27" size any more:

I know this is an old thread but has anyone tried Spray.Bike's products? Apparently some custom frame builders are using them.

Really nice -- a buddy of mine with access to powder coating just did his whole frame and I've been jealous. I inherited my mom's rusty 86 Puch several years and would love to get its champagne color back to square one.
