I have my orange beater bike. Ride this in the rain to keep my other bike nice and dry. [Image: DSCN0261.jpg]
edit: rebuilt the bike and painted it myself.

Ahhh nice Schwinn! You too nameused. As far as color combinations, just experiment and let the artist in you flow.

And one other thing PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE move the bike away from the train tracks Sad . Lol Welcome to the forums. Wink Smile
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

Thanks! I was thinking of using orange, and yes the bike has been moved from the train tracks Smile! I'm doing my first bike trip along the CA coast so I want a new paint job

There is a way to fade one color into another but it takes a little patience. Look on you tube and I think there is many videos there.
