1978 Schwinn Tornado

Clean 1978 Schwinn Tornado,Original tires

Saved this little guy from a friend.My buddy has a tendency to spray bomb everything and he did this frame even though it had decent paint.I traded him out of it before he could spray the rest.
Brought it home and sanded it out to correct his fisheyed paint mess and shot it with flat then a feathering of gloss then clear to sort of copy the original satin finish.
Is still rolling in original schwinn tires and Hunt Wilde grips.
