If you have a bike that you want to finish, you should consider powdercoating very seriously. A bicycle paint job be three to four times the cost of a powder job, and will be a bit less durable. Powdercoat is actually a baked on finish, and is very durable and very attractive. You would be surprised how many finish options are available, so if you are considering a refurb job, go talk to the guys at Xtreme and see what kind of options they have available to you.
I'm going to take the bike to the shop this weekend to get the headset cups and bottom bracket cups reinstalled, and then I'm going to scrub scrub scrub. I've already started the wheels and they are coming along nicely. I'm also going to try to figure out how to freshen up the two tone Schwinn seats that go on the bike - this isn't going to be a restoration, as I won't be putting new stickers on or anything, but I am going to do my best to make the whole thing look sharp. Thanks again to Drue for brokering the deal, and thanks to Xtreme Powdercoating for doing such a tremendous job.
