1968 Schwinn Racer Restoration – Continued Part 2
Getting closer! I bought a Brooks double rail saddle for the bike and new black Kenda tires. It just seems to have the right look for this type of bike. The rims and hubs have been polished and the bearings have been rebuilt. A brass brush really helped out for this process. The frame was completely stripped down, touch up paint was applied over the scratches, a cleaner wax was used and then a final coating of Turtle wax was put on the top.
