That is an exquisite example of Schwinn's painting process with the underlying paint on these early Opal colors. What are you planning on doing to bring back the oxidized red? ;)

Well Mr. Spoker poker toker, your uninteresting post here sure didn't answer the original question in this thread. And I really didn't care for your post or feel like googling your sentence for a translation.
