    I'm in with my BF Goodrich schwinn. Came up with the name from the bikes known history, it was dug out of an old chicken coop and taken to a small animal (chicken) auction to be sold and the auctioneer couldn't get any bids so he bought it and a couple other bikes and brought them to me. And I couldn't start taking the bike apart today because I'm in the middle of building a chicken coop at our house. My plans so far are just to build a hotrod inspired cruiser.

    Good luck! I am also building a chicken coop. Finally brought it out of the garage last week to free room up for the bike build. You should post a pic of the coop too.

    Do you know why chicken coop's only have 2 doors? If they had 4 doors it would be a chicken sedan! There's your egg!:chicken: Back to building... BIKES!

    Love the bike. Lots of potential there for sure. I really like that sprocket.

    Can you slide a piece of pipe over the end and just slowly bend till they match?

    Luke.
