    Nice find! looks great! i had the same thoughts in terms of the chainguard looking a little lighter than the frame but that could be the picture or just fading. check out the link to the catalog of an original Mark IV. its missing the tank if it indeed is a Jaguar. In any case you got a...

    Schwinn Speedster - FINISHED!

    Sweet ride, it looks awesome!! i'm glad someone else has used bicycle wheel wharehouse! I've got at least 3 sets of wheels that i plan on ordering from them, of course in colors! the only that bums me out is that you can't pick them up at will call.
