    I just finished up my klunker build.
    Besides a few trips around the block, I haven’t been able to test it out yet in the trails. I’m hoping to this weekend or next week.

    Schwinn Heavy Duti frame with a bunch of klunker upgrades as you see including sealed cartridge bearings in the BB and headset and 3 piece crank conversion.

    Let me know what you think!

    Looks great! I'm slapping one or two Heavy Duti's together for loaners for a USFS ride the end of the month...they won't look even remotely as nice as that :grin:

    Thanks! Rustoleum Satin Fossil. I was wanted to go a little more desert sand color like the Jeep Wranglers but this was the closest I could get. Also, the 3 piece worked out great! Thanks for the recommendation!

    Thanks and that’s awesome! If you need a fork for it, let me know. I have the stock one.

    Thanks!

    Took it out on 15 miles of easy beginner trails today. It did great! Can’t wait to try it out on some more advanced trails!

    Bub, nice looking bike, I really like the color combination. What did you use for the bottom bracket? Thanks, Dave.

    Sorry, I totally missed your question! I ordered the BB, the Prowheel crank arms and 32T oval chain ring all separate on eBay.

    Thanks, just curious, how do you like the oval chain ring? Thinking of trying one myself.

    So far so good! I feel like it really does help on inclines. I haven’t had any trail use so far except for one mellow trip but I’m definitely liking it

    The oval chainring is the reason I wanted to switch to the 3 piece bottom bracket. I’m planning on getting an Absolute chainring.

    Sweet build! I didn't think an oval chainring would work with a SS/coaster brake. Cool!
