    [Build idea] 1941 Hiawatha...... 10 Speed?

    As you know, I had managed to pull an old 1941 Hiawatha (Shelby Flying Cloud) bike out of the weeds in my own backyard. Well, I had been thinking some possible directions to go with it. One involved simply using 1960's schwinn pedal cranks and pieces to replace the rusted pieces. This got me...

    I picked this at the Ann Arbor swap. Complete except missing crank, sprocket, chain seat post and seat, but came with decent newer wheels and tires that I believe came from a 70's Murray. Gonna be a hodgepodge of vintage and newer parts. Aim is to build a comfortable cruiser that will attract...
