It's a fairly rare bike and boy was it rusty when I got it. SWING BIKES were built from '76 thru '78 maybe '79 so pretty cool to have one fall into my hands. It's not a restoration, it's a RAT for sure and yet a Muscle Bike too! I had some problems early on she was rusted tight. Check the build thread > HERE I also made a few mods, note the 24"x20" stagger rather than the standard 20"x16" I laced a 3 speed Sturmey Archer coaster hub into an old 24" rim and stuck a Schwinn Stingray tire on to keep the stance right with a 20-1.75 on the front. Chrome repo springer, Wald ramhorn bars wrapped in vintage Benotto tape and a Schwinn Mag sprocket with red and silver chain rounds out the visuals.

So very cool. Love the tire upgrade, and the classy bar tape is just icing on the cake. Definitely a favorite, up there with AlienFire.

Thanks. It's a placeholder pic. Hoping to get some good shots of it ASAP.
