Re: Schwindian Small Update (full size pics inside)



I got a new old bike today! It's a 74 still has original parts! No chain guard or fenders, but it looks like they were never installed.

This is one of my favorite builds for sure! Have you thought about a tall sissy bar? Just a suggestion.. the bike looks amazing already :D
I tried one on it, but wasn't really feeling it. Looked a little heavy in the rear.

A man can never have too many Stingrays, at least that is what my Grandpa told me, I think. :mrgreen:
I hear ya on the heat, been working a lot myself. We need to find an air conditioned shop that runs for free. Once again I spent all my allowance on jellybeans. Someday I'll learn. NAH! :lol:

Re: Schwindian Distractions, In A Good Way

Well I had picked up my boss's wife's bike a while back. Got around to getting it done (freed up some real estate in the garage), and made the delivery this morning.

The before shot.

The after shot.

The happy customer, Beth was all smiles!

Thanks Fellas! Had a good time with it. She was excited to get it back home. Even said she may come to some of the local events. :D

What a great distraction! I get a lot more satisfaction from buildling a bike for someone else than I do for building for myself!

Keep up the good work!

You got that right Pick! Anytime I can put a cool bike in someone's hands who loves it I feel like I have saved a part of bicycle history from being forgotten. Plus the smiles I get in return are always worth it.
That don't mean you can have my Stingray though :) Take care folks! See you on the next ride hopefully.

Put the license plate on this morning. Still not digging how the spark brake is working out. Either way though it rides good. And who needs brakes when you got Chucks on your feet?

It OK, I feel expired most of the time myself. :lol:
I know the feeling bro! 111 degrees two days in a row is enough to expire anyone! Maybe we should move to Alaska!
