I’ve had this ‘95 Schwinn cruiser laying around for years, and I’ve decided to build a strandie build out of it to kinda match the 20” Schwinn Tornado we recently built my son. I have a pretty nice aluminum wheelset that I’m going to run on it, and the intent is murder it out all black, and go with some BMX style bars, seat, and some fat BMX tires.

This is the frame with the wheels thrown on it.

This is the bike that I’m trying to build a full size version of. I won’t have mags, but thinking of blacking out the wheels I have and polishing the outer face to somewhat replicate the look.

I ordered a Lucky 7 chainring tonight that is the same as what’s on the Tornado. I was planning on running the normal Schwinn 4 hole thinking I wouldn’t be able to find the same as the one his bike, but they were cheap on the Bay, so I got it on the way.

I got the wheelset painted and I’m going to clear the whole wheel like I did the mags on my sons bike to protect the aluminum outer ring from corroding.

The Lucky 7 chainring came in today. Hoping to get finished to be ready for paint this weekend.
