    I love that reflection. One of the coolest things about the bike and I had nothing to do with it.

    It’s not the frame I started with. The original plan was with a girls Spaceliner frame. I just wasn’t liking it. So I switched to the 1964 Schwinn Traveler. It was a basic build with the obvious chainring from the Schwinn exercise bike. No matter what I did or thought about doing I kept...

    It’s tough to resist the urge to put it together as soon as the paint is on. Fortunately I painted it and left for vacation. I am home now and back at it.
