    Any thoughts on this ol’ girl?

    A Little Help on a Serial Number...

    Picked up this Schwinn cantilever a couple weeks ago and I have some cool ideas for a mild custom cruiser. I’ve been slowly cleaning it to ready it for stripes and clear. Can anyone help me with dating the serial number! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Folding bike crank question?!?!

    We had a yard sale the other weekend and I had some of my lesser bikes out for possible sale. Well, as it ends up, I BOUGHT a bike!! Although it has a Schwinn head badge, I'm sure it's either Italian or German. Cruising Google and eBay, I find eerily similar bikes with multiple...

    Wolfliner - Finished by B4C

    Here is Wolfliner - 1966 Ladies Spaceliner I had asked my wife, if I built a bike for her, what would she like? Her obvious answer...an NC State bike. See, she only applied to one school...accepted and graduated in 1988! Started with a decent but dirty find...not really sure how I acquired...

    How do y'all do that?

    I see others posting non-sale posts on the RRB Facebook group, but all I can seem to find is the "for sale" option. How do I just share a photo or comment outside of a classified post??? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
