Sometimes, projects just fall in your lap at the right time. Last year, I found my 59’ Schwinn frame at the Cool Bikes Club swap meet, which was right at the start of the build off. This time, my apartment complex decided to get rid of all bike racks. Any bikes that weren’t removed would be at the dumpsters. I made a round and didn’t see much I was interested in, but the 29” wheels caught my eye. Wound up being a Wally World bike, mostly unridden. No seat or post, but complete otherwise. Also found a Schwinn women’s mountain bike, missing the front wheel. Fair entry level mountain bikes and they were free. I came across a couple of BMX bikes, and removed some handlebars and some other good bits. Then I thought this would be a nice big boy BMX/Mountain Bike mashup. Time to clean it up, mock up some alternative bars and learn a bit about derailer’s. The satin black finish will be a nice canvas for some bright colors. I may sew up some custom pads for the bars and frame. This is build-off #4 for me. Always fun!
