    This is all I have so far, but I am going to try to build something out of it.

    POISON APPLE: '79 Schwinn Fair Lady Trike

    And yes, furyus was right, that green Cheater Slick is one of my freaks. Here are some others:

    POISON APPLE: '79 Schwinn Fair Lady Trike

    That looks great! I would definitely mount the seat lower and back further (and get rid of the seat post). You have the advantage of being able to mount the seat between the rear wheels. A tractor seat would look cool. Keep it low but not too far back. I would also use the higher apes and...

    Nexus 7-Speed Schwinn cream cruiser wheels (complete system)

    Sorry. I haven't been checking this site very often. It is typically 1/2" wider than the standard bicycle frame spacing. Most frames will stretch that 1/2" without permanently bending them outward. I had it test mounted and test ridden on a Monark Silver King aluminum frame with no problems...

    FOUND: CWC frame or rear triangle

    Just let me know if it doesn't work out. I will cut it up and send it to you just for the cost of shipping. (1953 frame)

    Nexus 7-Speed Schwinn cream cruiser wheels (complete system)

    One of the best multi-speed coaster brake systems ever made. Only made in '97-8 with the internal hub on the Schwinn Cruiser 7. The bike this system came from was owned by an older gentleman that said he only rode it a few times. It just hung in his garage for over 20 years. The bike rode and...

    FOUND: CWC frame or rear triangle

    I have a frame that would be perfect for what you want to do.

    The race to a million by 2022!

    I'm here, Matti. Thanks for your concern. Currently dealing with some serious psychological issues. Not really building bikes anymore. I still have all of my stuff. Everything is for sale if anyone is interested. Make an awesome deal for someone if they want to take it all. Probably have...

    BO15 A Step-Through Time---Changing projects for build-off

    I am doing a little better. Thanks for all the well-wishes.

    BO15 A Step-Through Time---Changing projects for build-off

    I have completely lost interest in bikes right now. Focusing on selling stuff due to health issues.

    BO15 HOMEMADE SHINE has a totally different look!

    Let me know when you get the fenders and chainguard. And I want to see them when they are finished and on the bike!

    In regards to the Class 1 rules...

    Here's a good example of a cool but ugly bike turned into the coolest cruiser. An original orange and cream 1940 Firestone Pilot Long Tank. It is actually one of my favorite style of bikes in the very best color. But here it is as found: Problems: Seat way up in the air, short bars pointed...

    BO15 A Step-Through Time---Changing projects for build-off

    I had this chainguard on my wingbars. But I don't own anymore wingbars. I agree, but it's kind of an optical illusion. My favorite Sting-Ray apes are 33" wide. These are only 29" wide, but they get there quickly and point almost straight backwards. And they pull back a whopping 14"! That's...

    BO15 A Step-Through Time---Changing projects for build-off

    Is this a better placement for the chainguard? I set the straight portion of the guard parallel with the top bars. Does it belong there now? I think it works.

    BO15 A Step-Through Time---Changing projects for build-off

    I have to finish these things up or I will snooze and miss the finish date. Easy for me to do. I completely agree. I have a whole pile of chainguards from which to choose. But I also think that I can make this one look right on this bike. Stay tuned!

    BO15 A Step-Through Time---Changing projects for build-off

    Those would look good, but I don't have any blue tires. I have red tires, but they are only 2.125 size. And look how small those 2.5 monsters look on this large bike! And they barely fit! Here's another clue: Now this bike matches my other build-off bike (Homemade Shine). Both all shades of...

    BO15 A Step-Through Time---Changing projects for build-off

    Here it is with big black tires and chrome drop-center wheels. Looks better. It follows the theme more aesthetically. Don't know if I like this chainguard on this bike or not. Still no name yet.

    BO15 A Step-Through Time---Changing projects for build-off

    First mock-up. Postwar Schwinn seat. Don't like the cream tires. Maybe 2.5 black tires on the next mock-up. Don't like the cream wheels either. Might need to go with chrome. Need to paint the forks aluminum.

    BO15 A Step-Through Time---Changing projects for build-off

    Silver Surfer might be a good name for this project. But Michael Palmer might not appreciate it. He is the Silver King Master, and he calls himself the Silver Surfer. Very cool California dude.
