Schwinn Paramount Frame Repaint
When I started this project, I didn’t think I needed to repaint the frame. I thought a few applications of touchup could fix it. That was an incorrect assumption. I was at a crossroads in the early stages of this project. Should I sell it, part is out and make money off of it, repaint it myself or have it professionally repainted?
Having thought this out, I decided to have it professionally repainted. I would leave it to the pros. Doing it myself would have involved investment into expensive equipment that would not be practical in a home environment. I looked around and decided that sending it to the Waterford factory in Wisconsin (the same factory that built this bike) would do this bike frame justice. They would strip, re-align and repaint it to the original factory color. They were a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend them. The bike came back in a new box and carefully packed. Needless to say, the job they did exceeded my expectations. Here’s some close up photos that should speak for themselves.
