Thank you! It is one of my most satisfying builds. It was nice to not have any deadline and make sure everything was done right even if it took more time.

Hi GoldenR,
Hope you're still around. Stumbled upon this beautiful reinterpretation of the Schwinn LeTour and I absolutely love it. Could you please get back to me regarding the paint prep, type, process, etc. Gorgeous... vm9240@rit.edu

Beautiful restoration and reinterpretation, very subtle. The frame dimensions look so much more elegant in this new color. Who makes those fenders?
