So BITD, RRS built a Cal Custom Cruiser using a 1979 Schwinn Spitfire 5 as the foundation. The bike was featured in a BMX magazine listing out all of the parts. The article said RRS spent over $1,000 to build the bike. That would be $4,032.45 dollars in 2023!. Some of the parts used on the original build are super hard to find (can you say Phil Wood drum brake? ), so I plan to make this more of a tribute rather than an exact copy. Here are some pictures of what I'm starting with. The color scheme will be black and gold.
