This bike was gifted to me several years back by a generous friend that I tended bar with. I replaced the brake levers, front wheel, seat post and saddle and have had a great time ever since. As far as I can tell, its just a big ol' Schwinn. The ride is actually quite nice and it gets plenty of stares/compliments where ever we go. The comics were shellacked to the frame using wheat paste.

Unfortunately, this bike got killed in April '08 when a moron in a Bonneville decided to make an illegal turn through an intersection as I was doing about 20mph. I smashed straight into the rear fender, busting up the frame as well as my wrist. Wear your helmets kids!

I have a question, what is the seatpost size?

My daughter and I just started a similar bike

She has an old motobecane mirage that we made a coaster single. We're covering it with Justice League comics. We got some decoupage glue at the craft store and then used rattle can clear on top. So far we have a chainguard and rear fender done, looks really cool. Sorry yours bit the dust!
