Blue X is DONE!


I had a blast with this one!

• Started with a Mid 1980s Schwinn Collegiate 3 used to be my daily rider
• Nice balloon tire bike fork bought from theflyingdingo …… $15
• Front tank from a Free girls JC Higgins
• Rear tank from a Free girls Monark
• “Seat post” and upright from same Monark
• Wheels, tires, bars,etc all from stuff in my parts pile
• Headlight and speedometer less then $15 bucks each on Ebay
• Krylon paint had from last build off
• Big Thanks to XC204 for all the help welding up the seatpost :mrgreen: :lol: :D :D :mrgreen:

Skip that is so cool I did'nt think it would be that rideable very nice . The frontal night shot is the nuts. Are you going to ride it on our next ride this month? Bring another of those indicator lenses we can build a taillight that slips into the seat tube end.

Does look fun to ride. If the bars were upright (you not leaning over) would you be able to keep the front wheel on the ground?
The bike is very stable I can sit up almost upright and the front tire stays glued to the road :mrgreen:

I rode Blue X to work today more then 15 miles round trip, and nothing fell off :roll:
HAD A BLAST!......just some fine tuning to do.....

Think I need to cover the seat or do something about those bolts :shock: :roll:
Thanks again
For all the positive comments :!:

And YES! I will be riding this on the 21st For the Chicago Ride! :D
