I just finished up my klunker build.
Besides a few trips around the block, I haven’t been able to test it out yet in the trails. I’m hoping to this weekend or next week.

Schwinn Heavy Duti frame with a bunch of klunker upgrades as you see including sealed cartridge bearings in the BB and headset and 3 piece crank conversion.

Let me know what you think!

Came out nice bud!
REALLY like that color.
Thanks! Rustoleum Satin Fossil. I was wanted to go a little more desert sand color like the Jeep Wranglers but this was the closest I could get. Also, the 3 piece worked out great! Thanks for the recommendation!

Looks great! I'm slapping one or two Heavy Duti's together for loaners for a USFS ride the end of the month...they won't look even remotely as nice as that :grin:

Thanks and that’s awesome! If you need a fork for it, let me know. I have the stock one.

Dig the color. Nice looking rig!
Thanks!

Bub, nice looking bike, I really like the color combination. What did you use for the bottom bracket? Thanks, Dave.

The oval chainring is the reason I wanted to switch to the 3 piece bottom bracket. I’m planning on getting an Absolute chainring.
