Sting Rays....Fastbacks & 1920 or earlier wooded wheeled with tires! Hard to see it in rear ...more photos tomorrow. I am going to start photographing them "in-situ" before disturbing them from their secret lair. Happy Happy!...plus loads of metal!
This is why I always insist in peeking around the corner of old buildings! For 20.00 dollars I grabbed this one up and future picking on the property. Lots of iron around. This was a springer front Schwinn @ 1946-48 (my guess) has solid iron trusses up front (need repaired) and complete skip-tooth sweetheart sprocket & crank.......it is now on a bike stand and seat remnant has been removed and the rusted (frozen) crank and fork assembly are now working! Amazing what a little squirt of Power-Blaster will do to break up rusted parts.................
Love the patina of father time..................gorgeous! It is going to keep this my friend with new bearings and a complete do-over...."The Boy is Back" and will be resurrected into a magnificent example of taking a throw-away and making a desired kool "Rustoration"......
My trusty old 85' Nissan 4x4 4cyl 5 speed go-anywhere truck! Had to show off some of my earlier barn-finds to enthusiasts at a local swap meet. The Swinger V was an instant celebrity! He went to a fine new home moments after arriving! Dig the shifters....one for gear selection and the other for braking! Instant coolness riding this baby!
Didn't even have time to blow the dust from this nice Fastback.
This will clean up incredibly nice. I've brought bikes back to life
that were a lot worse than this!
Great stuff! I missed that Swinger V at the show, didn't get there till Sunday ....!
Nice bike, and nice finds along with it, congrats.
Nice! I'm not generally into the Screamer-type bikes like your Swinger V, but that one is so complete I wouldn't have been able to pass up the opportunity to restore it!
