One F-ing Speed, old 1980 Voyageur 11.8
Don't know if this counts, since it's about 2/3 Schwinn: Knuckleduster
Somehere I have pics of my Prewar Cycletruck...
Ain't a rat rod but built similarly. A 1955 Phantom that I'm not done with. As paraded in a couple of Christmas parades this year. I've put about 10 mi. on it so far. Has a Bendix Multispeed manual hub on the rear.
One guy offered me $100 for it. Told him politely it wasn't for sale. Thanks!!!
Your Black Phantom is beautiful. I also like the art deco bike stand, was it bought or did you make it?
Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
Built with original krate parts with a couple of exceptions.... It is a laugh to ride. Eventually it may get painted, but for now, it's just fine as is.
Started out life as a '60 Tornado, now it 'Snottakrate:

Hi, guys. I'm new to this site, and am trying to figure out what to build for this summer. I have the frame to a 1938 Ladies Schwinn Excelsior, but I likely won't have all the parts necessary to do anything substantial to that, yet. So, I'm leaning toward a custom-ish Schwinn-based cruiser. The past two years, I've restored a couple of Schwinns. In 2009, I finished my 1970 3-Speed Stingray Fastback, and last year I restored a 1950 Panther that I had been riding around for several years as a rat with serious patina. I did everything including the paint and pin striping. The pics:
Loads of NOS stuff on the Fasty.
Rims, fenders, seat, sprocket, and tires aren't original. The rest, yes.
