This.

Honestly, strip/sand the old paint, wipe the dust off with a lightly damp rag, let it dry, primer it, let it dry, primer it, let it dry, paint it, let it dry, paint it, let it dry, paint it, let it dry, clear it, let it dry, clear it, let it dry, clear it, let it dry, BUILD YOUR BIKE AND RIDEEEEEEE.

*Each coat of primer, paint and clear is a THIN COAT. This way it goes on more evenly and does not run. Also, letting it FULLY DRY FOR A DAY OR TWO AFTER YOU ARE DONE BEFORE YOU BUILD IT WILL HELP THE PAINT BE MORE DURABLE.

Alternately have someone powdercoat or paint it for you at an auto body place. That would be the most durable.

thank you very much for the help! what type brand of paint, primer, and clear do you reccomend I use? Also, how long should i let it dry in between each coat of paint, each coat of primer, and each coat of clear? I plan on making the frame mint green.

Brand, don't get cheap store brand crap. I would aim for Rustoleum if you can. As to clear, same. Time to dry varies, honestly, I would recommend giving it at the MINIMUM, dry to touch. I used to give it overnight between each coat. Painting would take me a few days, but last WAY longer than knocking it out in a day or two.

Thank you again! also my uncle owns a paint and body shop... do you think they could paint my bike and that it would be the most durable option?

Spray paint is in liquid form. Powder is just that - powder. Powder coating requires some specialized equipment to do, but the end result is much more durable than spray. Powder coating is more expensive than spray, but it's affordable.
