    The video confirms it...This has reached bonafide dream bike status for me. I will do my best to emulate about 90% of what you have done on this bike... the remaining 10% is only so I can claim some small amount of originality :bigsmile:.

    Man, that video sort of satisfied a desire of mine since early on...Wanting to ride this thing!
    Most everyone here seems to start with ballooner, muscle bike, BMX or the occasional Mt. Bike.... Never have I seen an old 70's 10 speed get transformed into a bona fide Custom like this one!
    Fantastic!

    Thanks. I heard last year the average number of riders for Slow Roll was between 2000 - 3000 each week. Awesome way to experience the city and see some of the great things going on. I doubt you'd be disappointed.

    I'm pretty excited about how nice this bike is to ride. Certainly opens up options for future designs!

    Wish I could claim the originality of reconfiguring old ten speeds as my own. This design owes a huge debt to burrito bikes. That and a general stubbornness in trying to make something of the parts and pieces I had on hand.

    Thanks.

    Absolutely love this bike. The video rocks! I went to college in Detroit and I recognize those murals. Very cool!! Good luck, I tried to vote for your bike twice but it won't let me!

    Hello!!! Matt from Pa. Love the design! A lot of work.
    Pre existing Shape, True to Schwinn. I wanted you to take a look at my bike . Took a 1947 Schwinn Tandem and made it in to a cruiser with the same concept. Hope you like it . Project X Black Sunshine on Vimeo or you tube

    Really nice! Do you have plans for another build? I hear there's a build-off going on ;)
