Bicycle After Powder Coating
This is Tim's Schwinn World Sport, a 1984.  Tim has already done some very nice work to the Schwinn, I am going to do the matte black powder coating.  I absolutely love the beefy tires on the world sport, they barley clear the frame but they are awesome!!

The components are in nice shape so I will just disassemble what I need to.

With the frame stripped of the components I can see some rust here and there but not bad at all, it will be removed before powder coating.

I am mad at myself because I guess I forgot to take photos of the frame after stripping and prepping.  I did take photos of the fork stripped and prepped.  Basically the frame had the same process and look.

The powder coating process went well.  I did powder coat the fork twice, the first time I just did not like a spot so I stripped it and powder coated it again.  Overall the matte black looks fantastic!  I am very pleased with the results.  I am excited to see the world sport completed in the new matte black.

I installed the head badge with a combination of tape, new rivets and epoxy.  I think the head badge and the matte black is one of the coolest looks I have seen!  The red center with the gloss black outer ring and silver just pops off the matte black color.  I love it!!

I really like the look of the World Sport!  Tim really has a nice look going with all the black and a little chrome.  Its one mean looking bike!!

I test road the World Sport after assembly to make sure all was installed correctly.  The large tires are an amazing ride!!  Like riding a very fast Cadillac!  Tim is a man after my own heart when it comes to tires!

I am very pleased with the results of the World Sport.  The black and matte black theme turned out amazing!  Quite a transformation!

  1. I believe the top logo and also the matte dark is among the best appears I've observed! The actual red-colored middle using the high gloss dark external diamond ring as well as metallic simply jumps from the matte dark color.
