    byebye green cuiser

    just traded off this green schwinn for some early 90's technics tower speakers. omg. i forgot what it was like to hear music the way it was meant to be heard. still, it kinda hurt to see the bike go. he is a friend though, so it's not that bad.

    a nice pair (schwinns)

    i picked up a couple of middleweights the other day. i guess i'll dump any and all progress pics in here. black 63 speedster: it currently has the original s5's on it and i'm wondering if an s7 will fit one of these "camelback" style frames. red 60? panter II: spent about ten...

    pacific legend.

    freebie. found it down the street with an extra wheelset. aired up the tires and rode it around. everything works. shimano 21 speed shifts good. i was going to part it, but i think my oldest son is interested in it. crappy pic:

    reflector and headlight ???

    anyone know what the original reflector would have looked like on my monark? and are they available anywhere? also, i need a lens and bezel (i assume they are separate) for my headlight. is it a delta martin? i think that's what i read. i dunno. i am still learning. any help would be appreciated.

    my 62 middleweight...

    finally got it all pieced together and made a lap around the block. rode pretty good. i need to mess with the gearing, but i think i have a line on a 2 speed kickback so i will wait and see what comes from that. it's not much, but here it is:

    anyone ever messed around on flickriver? as an example, i just typed in schwinn and came up with over 40,000 pictures. you can type in anything and come up with some really cool pics.

    60's? monark?

    just picked this up today and have no idea what year it might be. the seller wasn't sure either. i tried looking for serial numbers on the web with no luck. it appears to be pretty original, but i am still a rookie. thanks for any help. serial no. 1H763129

    dropout/axle sizes.

    i keep hearing everyone say (type) that all newer 26 cruiser wheels will fit, but i tried to put the wheels off my huffy cranebrook on my 62 middleweight frame and forks and the axle shafts were a bigger diameter and wouldn't fit into the drop outs. anyone else run across this problem?
