Bike Restoration Project

Scratch the restoration.  Customization.

For my 25th birthday my brother gifted my wife and me two old, slightly ratty bikes.  Mine is an old JC Penny with a slick friction shifter 5 speed.  My wifes is a 2 speed kick shift 1963 Schwinn.  Hers is mechanically quite solid, but rusty and a bit bent up on the fenders.  I am planning to do the JC Penny in a flat black frame and polish the chrome as much as possible, with orange accents.  The schwinn is going to get done in a coral tone with white fenders and other accents.  Pics to follow…
