Yes I did. A fun and interesting little science project. I wasn't really shooting for the "found at the bottom of the ocean" look but I think I'll keep it.

Thanks! Map this pic was last Christmas Dec 22nd 2013 100 more bikes were brought to the park shortly after this pic was taken but there was over 1000 people by 5:00pm so my goal is to keep a few kids out of trouble this summer by giving them a bike for something to do when they are board and I even got a couple for adults who don't have a car and need to get to work.

Next project when funds come available is to build a trike for a buddy of mine who was run over by a car last year and can no longer drive because his feet were crushed we'll see.

But lets get back to the this tread I just wanted to post what I did to a non M/B today HE! HE! HE!.

My motorized '73 Schwinn Continental is still all in parts - still painting her. Wish I had a spare MB, but other bikes are all purely leg-powered.

The paint job is going well. I'm down to doing the final clear coats. Don't know how many that will take, though. This is a "specialty" job I'm trying. My frame was totally bare metal, so I primed it with a black "rust restorer" paint. Looks like it will be a very good bare-metal primer. Forks were factory paint, so I just gray primered them. Then laid down the coats of gold for a base. Then clear just so I could sprinkle on some red glitter while the clear was still tacky. I know this sounds hideous, but it was just a very light, even amount to give a bit of a metal flake effect. It is looking awesome. Then the red Krylon X-Metals paint went on. Takes about 3 or 4 light coats to get the color nice and even. Then enough clear to get all the glitter flakes covered and enough to wet-sand flat and smooth.

Maybe another week. After the final clear coat, I like to "bake" it by having a space heater on it constantly for at least a few days.
