So this is my first build-off and I know it's gonna be fun! The concept I have is building a bike that looks tough and is designed to head out early in the A.M. to the beach to check the surf to see if the waves will be decent enough for surfing. It needs to look like a survivor, but have the parts that would work in a beach setting. I'm starting with a 26" 1962 Schwinn Typhoon. I thought the name Typhoon would go nicely with Surf Patrol. The bike should be comfortable enough, but command a presence. We'll see how far we get! I picked this bike up a couple of months ago, but have not touched it since.
