The white could have been a little more creme, and there are some little scratches from removing the stencils, but overall I'm pretty happy with the result.

Great, do you have a topic allready?
Are you going full period correct, with drum brakes and all?
That was the biggest struggle for me with this build, Union and Atom brakes with Schwinn S2 rims in good condition are hard to come by for under 1K.
So decided to go canti.
