    Hint:
    It’s Aluminum and It’s a Schwinn.

    Ok

    This frame is a Schwinn Tornado that was stripped for parts by my friend that owns Stonehall Bicycle, Monroe.
    It needs a fork and seat post that is not from your average cruiser. Jeff is a tech wizard with all the tools, so I recruited him to help me bore out the head tube to fit adapters that would accommodate an old-school 1” steer tube.

    I gotta hand it to the Asian welders, their beads aren’t too bad.

    So you know, this frame weighs in at 5lbs, stripped.

    I may chop off the chain guard tabs...but use the bridge to mount a new fender. The tires are going to be so fat, normal fenders won’t work. 567E214D-C885-426B-A551-38830C3C7790.jpeg 237A0787-7FE8-4634-A7FB-8288923A2768.jpeg 275C7F7F-C3FF-4507-B3F4-18BB3B31A3F0.jpeg

    Parts that may be used, or maybe not.

    I haven't seen one of those twin tube frames before. I like it!

    Yes IT DOES exist, but it’s kinda rare, because it’s from the “Signature” line.

    You don’t find these at Wal-mart, boys and girls!!:bigsmile:

    Stonehall is a Schwinn dealer and full service shop.
    http://stonehallbicycle.com/

    If you’re ever in Monroe, Wi, stop in and talk to Jeff. He worked with Trek for years and then opened his own place.

    Little shameless plug. :grin:

    They made a similar version with a cup holder between the top tubes.

    9F6A3F9C-EB67-4CB0-B257-6E71BB6B5104.jpeg My tail light. I need to make it hold an LED and make a bracket to mount it.

    Slowly getting parts together...
