Nice clean Schwinn! Thrift

Nice clean Schwinn! Thrift store/garage sale bargains are the most fun to bring back to life. Although that seat stay looks a bit bent in the second pic.

Nice Find

Hey first add, i love hearing stories about thrift store bikes that get converted to fixies. Nice work man, I converted one bike and then bought this one. Tell me a little about your build, ie How you painted it, where you got parts from? What other bikes you are considering to buy after winter?

Until next time... Now go skid your tire off.
