Picked up a 1967 Schwinn on CL. Made a quickie transfarmation. Switched the seat for a NOS red banana, ditched the basket, switched the S7s for snowflake leced S7s with a red band kickback, added a headlight and made a faux patina chainguard to match. No biggie
Yeah, don't know why I hadn't quite gotten to repainting the wheels. I just got the thoughts of; leave it like it is- ratty, hotrod it- fatter wheels/gears/etc, or mildly redo it. Not the money shot, but here it is.
Thanks for the input.
I just picked up a 2010, on the cheap, and it needs help. Most of the bolts are rusted (quick trip to the hardware store, no biggie), the bars are wrong, the wooden basket slats are toasted with the finish failing and the rims are totally sun bleached. Have some cruiser bars and a set of red 3G...
... Pretty darned cool. Couldn't decide on where to post this. http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/bik/4928225418.html
A handbuilt, rat rod pedal tractor on C'list. Would have been cool to see a jackshaft and some gears with a tall stick shift. Maybe the next owner will. Need to get myself some...
