Hello everyone! My name’s Austin. I got into bicycles back in March 2018 when I bought an early 1950s Schwinn for $65 at an auction. Fast-forward to today, and I now have 5 bikes that I’m working on, each in varying stages of completion: my first bike, a 1950/1951 Schwinn Spitfire, a late-50s/60s AMF-built Western Flyer Sonic Flyer my Grandpa gave to me as a gift, a mini muscle bike that I need help identifying, a rusty 1950s Schwinn Straightbar frame that used to be a mailbox post, and my Nana’s 1965 Schwinn Hollywood that I’m cleaning up for her. I also have accumulated a small stash of bicycle frames and parts, some that I’m keeping for my own projects, and some I’d like to sell or trade. I was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which has been my home for nearly 27 years now. I’ve always had a passion for art and animation, having grown up on ‘90s/early-2000s Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Disney Channel, and even Kids WB. I just graduated college a few years ago with an AAS in Digital Media, which sadly hasn’t made landing a job in animation/graphic design any easier. Nevertheless, I continue to pursue a career that puts my creativity and imagination to work, and I still make it a point to work on my art and improve my skills as often as I can. Like some other folks here, I grew up around classic cars, car shows, swap meets, races and all other forms of vintage Americana. I even have a 1964 Mercury Comet 404 4-door sedan that I’ve driven the entire length of Route 66 as of 2018! However, since my Comet’s had to sit in the garage since late 2018, I’ve been putting more time into working on these old bikes of mine. I actually found this forum not long after I got my first Schwinn, and I’ve been inspired by all the talented builders here. I’m really glad to be here, and I’m excited to learn more about classic bicycles and bicycle customization from you guys! By the way, I looked at the “how to post photos” guide, but since Photobucket decided to change things for the worse, and I don’t know much about ImageShack, what image-hosting site would you all recommend I use, if necessary?
