    Has anybody ever seen a Horn like this?

    I got this EA Laboratories horn over the weekend. It has the loud "klaxon" sound grunt when you pull the trigger. I cant seem to find any information on it. I can find plenty of the top plunger style, but nothing in this bullet shape with the art deco grill. The white is all enamel coating...

    1971 Schwinn Manta Ray - Kool Orange - FINISHED

    The guy that installed the AC unit in my house last year sent me a text out of the blue.

    Ross Apollo - all original

    My parents found this one for me today. It is a 1978 (i think) Ross Apollo. Everything appears to be original and in great shape. Only needs a light cleaning and the sissy bar needs to be turned around :?: the seat is even in perfect condition and the vinyl is still soft

    Restored White Schwinn Grips
