Looks great!!! What kind of paint did you use?

BikeHacker (author)Gabo192014-06-11

I used Rust-Oleum American Accents Ultra Cover for the main frame.

I used Rust-Oleum Black Satin for the stripes on the chainguard.

Love it- totally clear and simple Instructable and the bike looks great, but I think you need a varnish to protect it from scratching, what do you think? How does it withstand knocks?

The paint does well. I will varnish it though. Rust-Oleum sells a clear protective enamel. Do you think it would work?.
