    (MY) HOODLUM FRIEND ( take II )

    Same bike as last year, a ‘58 Higgins frame and rims. This project never got off the ground last year, so I will attempt to get it built this year. Sadly it was my first DNF since joining the forum. I’m keeping the plan: tough and slick, like a 50s hoodlum.

    For my 8th build off entry, I will be working with this '58 Higgins frame and rims. Going for tough, yet slick... like a 50s hoodlum. Fresh paint and newer parts.

    BO15 I Can't Afford the Gas

    I was going to do a strand / BMX cruiser using a Schwinn Speedster camelback frame, but @ParkRNDL posted his first, so I will graciously concede that idea to him. I think they may have been too similar. So! I've decided to tackle this 59' Schwinn Spitfire for a rat build. After all, as many have...

    Teeth of the Hydra

    This build features the 71’ Schwinn Racer frame that I used in my first build off (BONINE). It doesn’t get the love it deserves ( no one rides it ), so I’m going to turn it into a 3-speed klunker and hopefully give it new life and “get it on” the trail. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Huffy Eldorado??

    I picked this up last week, and I just got around to trying to ID and date it. Has Huffy parts ( seat, coaster brake ). The only numbers I found are under crank case and it's only three digits. 811. That doesn't register anywhere. So going solely on looks and the huffy coaster I'm guessing it's...

    Rizzo - Tough and Tender

    Some definite correlations between Grease Rizzo and Bike Rizzo. grease Rizzo thought she was prego and I didn't think bike Rizzo would cross the finish line. Thankfully I had a day longer than I thought I did and Bike Rizzo crossed, and Grease Rizzo was NOT pregnant after all. Here she is on...

    Rizzo - Tough and Tender

    The frame is a 53 CWC. The other parts are things pulled out of the spare parts bin. I told my daughter I'd put this one together for her and told her it was from the 50's, and she said ," oooooo, like Grease." I didn't want to call it Grease Lightning, but that's what I'm going for. Sent...

    1964 Scwhinn ( Panther ? )

    I picked up a Schwinn and the serial number dates it in 64. It has a Panther chain guard, but the panther is not included in the 1964 or the 1965 catalog... Hmmm. Fishy, eh? What were the production dates of the Panther? It also, doesn't have Roman numerals after "panther" Sent from my iPhone...
