My ORBO this year will be this schwinn thing. Not a schwinn, but it is a nicely made beach cruiser frame.
I have added a few bmx bits and really like how comfortable it is. So I want to give it a make over, paint it up, and swap in some new goodies.

After throwing some bmx goodies at it to see what sticks.

Crank, chainring and pedals look great.
 
Good blend of parts so far
 
I think metalcast blue will compliment the light blue of the frame quite nicely.

Paint stripper for the crankset

Now I was going to stay with 26" wheels.
But. Looking through my stash for skinny stock, I thought these rims would make for a perfect pair of 29" pro class rims for the schwthing.
So onto the drill.

Really cool build, this thing is coming out nice. Do you use a fixture for welding on your brake mounts? I haven't done that before but it looks like it would come in handy.
