    Trailer Bike New Paint Job

    So because the kiddo is still to small to run 12 or 15 miles in her regular bike I picked up last year a little Schwinn Runaround Trailer bike.

    When I got it the paint was pretty scratched and it needed a good clean up. Well this weekend I finally got my @$$ off the couch and got to work on it.

    What the bike looked like



    Work in progress



    Once it was put back together, It got sanded, primed a couple of coats of yellow paint and 3 coats of clear coat. Im still thinking of putting some stickers on it. The idea is, later on this season I will repaint my bike all black with yellow details.

    Cool!
    Does she hang in for those 12 to 15 miles on the trailer? Did she pick out the yellow color? Neat looking rock behind you, too.

    She will actually pedal most of the 12 miles with me as long as we're not going up hill. Then she just lets me do all the work.

    I picked the color. She would have had me pulling a pink bike if it was up to her. I really wanted hers to match mine so yellow it was.

    That rock formation was pretty cool. it is in a camping area in Woodland Park, CO

    ???
    If I were going through the trouble of painting it, I`d be thinking to match them too. But yours looks silver or grey to me in the picture, and you said you want to paint it black.
    Maybe paint them both pink!
