Hey guys,
It's been an awesome summer working on this thing, and put a lot of miles on it. My goal was to do something simple with a cool patina and a killer stance. I was inspired by a lot of vintage board trackers and old whizzers. I Picked up the 1952 Schwinn DX at a garage sale and was able to source a lot of parts through eBay and friends. I'm extremely happy with how it came out. It's one of my favorite bikes to ride due to how cushy and laid back it is. So here are the final pics!
