    Got all of the masking off from around the black accents. First, all of the edges were wet sanded to help prevent the possibility of pulling off any new paint along with the tape. Everything will eventually be sanded anyway so this also knocked down some of the edge before prepping for...

    Bent springer fork

    It may be hard to tell from the photo, but it looks like the fork is ok and the stem just needs to be lined up. Nice rider!

    I'm not sure what the original colors where. The girls bike had several colors on the parts and the boys bike was a repaint when they came to me. Sadly my wife is not into riding either. She loves skating! I have a set of his and hers Monark Super Deluxe bikes (not matching colors) that I...

    Thanks @fattyre . I've used the paint frames for lots of parts like wheel hubs, cranks, bars, etc. Basically if you can suspend anything with wire, they work great! Here's a wheel set that I painted a couple of years ago using them. I simply ran the bailing wire through the spoke holes. The...

    After some mild body work and paint prep everything was treated to several coats of automotive single stage enamel. Using my triangle paint frames made easy work out of painting the frames.
