Wore out three sets of tires already!
I plan on restoring and would appreciate any information.
First step paint removal. I weighed out blasting vs stripper. Concerned about the anchoring effect in the steel (especially around serial #), so stripper it is.
Any recommendations on sourcing paint?
Kooleststuff has the correct paint you need and the screening process for your guard

Well, we (my nephew is getting into this project as well) decided to go with a complete restore. I checked out koolstuff paint and was wondering how important it is to use a reddish primer? I thought that’s what Schwinn had originally used?

Yep, Schwinn used the red oxide primer. Pete/Cool Stuff recommends the gray primer because it takes less paint to cover it when using their solid colors like Yellow and White, and maybe even their aluminum base for the candy colors.

Found a couple of frame issues, head badge holes are drilled out and I believed the stand has been drilled.
Since it’s bare metal going to weld up holes and drill correct holes.

It is threaded,. There was a screw threaded in to hold the kick stand Much larger than original hole for retaining pin.
