I will start my build-off with the bike's name and the reason I have chosen it. This build's starting point is a set of wheels and tires that I have always wanted, and finally found. Because of this wheel/tire combo, I was very limited in what kind of frame I could use. As a rule, I only use vintage frames with original paint for my builds. I am one of those it's-only-original-once guys. After a lot of contemplating and measuring, I only had one frame that would be usable, and it's probably a very rare frame. It is a blue and cream 1950 Schwinn DX 24" S-2 (balloon tire) frame made on Friday, August 11th, of that year. Kind of an oddball, a "FREAK", if you will. I also have an original blue 50's "Schwinn Spitfire" badge that I am going to use, even though the Spitfire model didn't come out until 1951 (only a few months later). I am loosely modeling my build after the board track racers of the 20's and many of the racers of that era had bike names that ended in "special". I have been a car guy since I was a little boy. So I remember that the original Corvette motor was called the "blue flame special". So, the name choice was more than obvious. Then I googled the name to get a picture of that early Corvette motor to post, and I discovered that the term had been given a whole new meaning. It was a term used in a 1991 movie called "Point Break". Since I had never seen the movie, I was clueless as to the more recent meaning of the term. You will have to google it yourself to learn the "newer" meaning of "blue flame special". I might get in trouble if I post it here. Let's just say that it didn't discourage me, but it actually encouraged me to keep the name and use it for this build. "You're a real blue flame special, aren't you, son? Young, dumb, and full of ..........."
