I picked up this 1958 Schwinn racer on the local classifieds a few weeks ago for $25. The wheels were pretty shot, but I figured it would be fun to mess around with.

I got it all broken down, degreased, polished, and waxed. It was surprisingly easy to take a part and the paint is shinier than I thought it would be. I picked up a pair of Continental retro ride tires in 26x2”. They fit, but there’s not much spare room. Just waiting for wheels to get here and then I’ll start putting it back together.

Got my wheels in from @ind-chuckz and got t he tires mounted. I haven’t had a chance to get the rest of the parts polished up yet.

I have always thought the front fenders on these are a little weird. However, I think they look better as a bobbed fender on the rear.
