It began with a very complete Sunset Orange 1973 Schwinn Super Sport. We removed the drop bars in favor of some tourist bars and added some shellacked pure cork grips. Every part came off the bike and got degreased, cleaned and polished. New cables, housings, grease and reassembled. The original alloy wheel set got rebuilt hubs, trued and a set of new Panaracer Pasela gumwalls installed. The client has selected a very conforming set of SKS LongBoard fenders and a brown Brooks B17 leather saddle. Typical of vintage Schwinns, the paint POPS and the chrome GLEAMS!
Hand rubbed pure cork grips with the first of four coats of shellack.
