Started this one last year as a mashup between a '68 Schwinn short frame and a 20 inch Schwinn mountain bike.

Here is where this years build began. The makeover. Build thread here.

New polished hoops, polished & re-greased the hubs + re-laced wheels with new spokes. Re-covered seat and re-paint with decals. New brake pads and stem.

Your paint and gloss finish is top shelf! And the black/chrome/charcoal color combo looks tough and fast; just like a muscle bike should.

Hey, toss in a pic of you building that seat. That turned out so well, one of my favorite parts of the bike build. Well done!:41:

Looks very tough, especially the bars. Careful, kid's gonna want a slammed '69 Road Runner in a few years, and you're buyin'.

Couple of great bikes you've built. Nice nice work for sure.

Sweet and subtle blending of the two bikes to come out with a stealthly practical muscle bike!
Love it!
