    Very impressive work & detail. Were did you get the seat redone on the 26'' DX may I ask ? I been on a quest for years to find a seat just like that one!

    Got the seat years ago from Mike Stief. Been trying to get another one, but he hasn't have had any for the past 5 or 6 years.

    Cool,, buy the looks of it ,,, I'm guessing mid 40's Whizzer seat ? The big springs remind me of one I seen at our local car show.

    Hi again, I have one more question about the dimples, (if you don't mind) did you have to heat the chain-stays in order to make it easier? Thank you!

    www.vintageschwinn.com has most colors in a spray can. I bought the maroon, and it was a perfect match.
    I hope this helps.
