Picking up the bike frame tonight, 5/1

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 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.

This saddle has been in my basement for years. I think it’s time to use it.

The lay-back seat post I wanted to use is too little for this modern frame, but I’ve got a plan.

Stonehall is a Schwinn dealer and full service shop.

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:
