This was one of my build off bikes. It is a Schwinn American frame and fork modified to mold a Shelby long nose springer into it. The springer works great as it was intended to. I will probably parr this bike out, due to the sum of the parts being greater than the value of the bike. I am asking $500.00 shipped for this cool rat.

At my asking price, you get everything shown. The delta Jet Rocket light is the top only, the rest is a cheap chrome torpedo light bottom with a modified lens. As you can see, it works great.

The rear light, mounted to the rack looks like jet boosters when lit.

Those chain guards were on Western Flyers that were built by Murray. I think the Murray Mercury and some other models had this guard for a few years too. The graphics not original.

I think that I will start listing some parts and see where this goes.
First.



A very nice Shimano 3CC three speed wheel set. The chrome is really good on these hoops! The 26x 2.125 redwall tires, tubes, stem shifter are all included ---SOLD!

Second. --- SOLD SOLD!!
The Schwinn/Shelby springer fork assembly (horn and bracket will be removed. The headtube is Schwinn 21.1 so a schwinn or comparably stem will be required. Chrome is pretty nice for the age on the Shelby part.


Third.
My custom painted chain guard. I think that it is cool enough to be worth $65.00 shipped. Dropped to $45.00 !!
