    Yeow, great find. Keep us posted of the clean up progress. Little bit of work there but I think you will be rewarded.

    What do you use for rust. I use Vaporust. I have used metal rescue and wood bleach. All 3 seem to work well.

    You much be a single guy? Cuz man, if my wife came in the room and saw a couple of Schwinn frames on the couch, I'd be a dead man! Nice bikes man, can't wait to see the progress.

    Before you move in together, invite her over for the weekend leaving those frames on the couch.
    Do not move them nor say anything about them..... Her reply will tell you a lot about the future. (Be very careful if she is silently about it all....)
