    Picked up three bikes today from three different people. I think the most interesting is the camelback. Parts of it look Schwinnish, but I’m not sure. The 60’s schwinn looks like an old repaint, and the liner will probably be parts.

    Nice haul , that first bike is odd , might be home made ? I see some hints as in the big weld on the seat stay and the unusual bend on the top tube towards the front .

    This one took a bit of a turn. After I posted this I was looking around and found an aerocyle that was taken apart for restoration and I thought that it looked awfully similar to this frame. More searching and a post on the cabe it turns out that it is most likely a 1935 Schwinn aerocycle frame. It has the tab so the trussrods didn't hit the tank and no headbadge holes. It's got some damage (weld/brazing at the top tube/seat post junction) and most of the parts are incorrect, but I like the unusual look to it.

    Found this bike yesterday, 1965 Varsity. It's a nice bike but probably too small for me. It's hard to pass up a nice coppertone at a good price.
