    Have you tried some ape hangers on it. I could picture it that way with the added benefit of a more comfortable ride.

    Now that it has been suggested twice I should try it, but all I have is a set of twisted apes off my low-rider. I just don't think those are the right look.

    I like the human element in the picture! After all, bikes were meant for riding...

    Interesting rocker design on the fork, never seen one with a dropout before.

    So the rims I had powdercoated black ended up not working with the bike or the tire I wanted to use. So i switched to these. Trying to decide if I should powder coat these or leave them....[​IMG]

    I am not a big fan of rims matching the frame. I like the contrast of the silver against the blue.

    Why is it every time I have tire/rim issues it always involves something schwinn! About to be posting a set of gloss black powdercoated s-7 style rims for sale I think...

    The silver rims show off the thick slick tires better, and look good with the leaf springs and chain....
