1968 Schwinn Racer Restoration – Complete!

The fenders were stripped and repainted with black lacquer, clear coat and finally the pin striped were added.  A final coat of wax was added and it looks great!  

I took it out recently to the Critical Mass Ride in Miami and it was received quite well.  Someone said “I like your bike!  I know it is new, but I like how they styled it to look old.”  I thin I’ll take that as a compliment.
