'57 Schwinn "Krunk Junk" New shoes

Discussion in 'BUILD OFF 9 BIKES' started by outskirtscustoms, May 1, 2014.

  1. As the title suggests I will be basing my build on a factory prototype mountain bike that Schwinn could have built back in the day using period correct Schwinn parts. It's a bit cold out here today so enjoy the 24hour head start guys.

    Great concept
     
  9. Well guys I hate to disappoint but I will be sitting this build off out after all and focusing on family issues, my mother had a massive heart attack yesterday and had to undergo surgery to remove 2 blockages and put in two stints in her heart so she is in the hospital for the next 3 days for observation then after I will be caring for her so no build off for me this year. I do look forward to seeing all you guy's creativity this year though. Maybe next year guys.

    Shame the bike is out but family must come first. I hope she makes a full recovery.

    If and when you get to the bike, I will be following, this was one build I was really looking forward to seeing.

    Luke.

    You are concentrating your energies where they should be.
    Hope your mum bounces back. If you need it don't forget there is a family here to lean on or whatever helps.

    Sent prayers for a full recovery.
     
  13. You guys are the best, it's been a rough week getting everything with the house up to Indiana code, tearing the shed down, getting all that hauled off and getting the van moved on to concrete and now my mom's heart attack so it's been really hectic. And I just got a letter from the city complaining about scrap metal in the yard that was hauled off the morning after the shed was torn down... Got to call them tomorrow and tell them they are stupid and get that figured out too.

  14. Just depending how she does I might be able to jump in the build off late and get finished on time. I have build bikes in a week so it's still a possibility.

    You are doing the right thing....makes me appreciate my 87 year old bike-riding mom.
    Can't replace that connection with anything.

    Man I totally hear where you are coming from. I went thru 15 years of heart issues with my dad. He had over 10 heart attacks before he finally gave up the fight.

    Be there for your mom, that's important. But remember that when you need to get your mind off the stress, building a bike is a good way to do it.

    Take good care of your Mom. You're a good son for doing so. Hope she recovers well and soon.
