All bikes aren't Schwinns? :? Really? :p Gary

they are if you're selling it at the flea market.

i was wandering through one day and stopped to look at a bike that had huffy written all over it. the guy said it was a schwinn, and pointed at the schwinn seat on it.

My favorite ride is my 1937 Schwinn CWC Roadmaster.

My second favorite retro/vintage Schwinn is my 1989 Murry that is all original and in mint condition. The only thing that I have changed is the Color, rims, bars, and seat. But it is all OG Schwinn.

It is very cool owning a vintage bike!!!!

I went to the Savannah Craft Brew Fest today. Last year I used my BO7 BEER RUN 1978 Schwinn Typhoon custom beer bike to get free entry.
Today, I must have had at least 10 people come up to me and say "Oh cool, you're the beer bike guy from last year". Then I had about five people recognize me from Fugsley (80s Dahon with Harley/OCC tires) and another five recognize me from Flex-Liner 7 (60s B)7 TwinFlex Spaceliner).

I am a bit overwhelmed being recognized as the "custom bike guy" in a town of almost 300K. I really wish tere were more of us, or that I could find the others.

I know a lot of the pedicab drivers in our tourist town, so it was fun talking "shop" with one of them as I got him to give me a ride from River Street back home (10 blocks).

Oh yeah, and the craft brew was awesome!!!! Got back home in time for a rest before I head out with Flexy and my Flying Tiger Shark costume for our 10 mile city ride and to win me "MO MONEY"!!!!

People are friendlier when you ride a classic bike. These guys invited me back for beer and BBQ.

We had our police escorted ten mile night ride through Savannah tonight with approximately 500 bikes.
Flexy was a hit, but the best and funniest compliment I received happened as we rode past some spectators at a restaurant and one of the patrons pointed and me and hollered..."Hey, you're THAT GUY!!!!".

I was riding back home from visiting my dad on my Flightliner. An older man that was cutting his grass, he just stopped in his tracks and watched me ride by on the old Flightliner, I don't know if it was the chrome frame that caught his attention, or maybe he owned one yrs. ago. I waved and kept going.
