It was common practice and is even today to shoot paint on fresh sheet metal such as a tank. Most likely it has been phosphoric acid dipped, then painted without a primer. To be honest, I don't recollect ever seeing a primer on painted chain guards or fenders that have passed thru my hands. The new machines I deal with at work have primer on all the castings and plate steel but none of the sheet metal guards have a primer. I have a guard just like this one, same color, and checked it. I see no primer at all at the chips and scratches like this eBay piece.

Like I said; I don't know but would have assumed Schwinn would have primered them but maybe there wasn't a need or that explains why they seem to jus' wear off / disappear 🤷‍♂️🤔

been a painter for 35 years. If that was repainted was many years ago. You can't fake those looks. My opinion unless there in really good condition, a good repaint job is way better than a rusted beat up one anyway, but to each his own. Unfortunately the enamel paint back in those days was not very good and durable like the 2k stuff is today.
