I'm looking at two frames, both Schwinns: Speedster and Racer for a possible build. I'm wondering what differences there are in the two frames, both middle weights?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
So recently I had the fortune to purchase one of each: A complete and original Sports Traveler and a Paratrooper- frame and forks, both built in 1946 by Westfield/Columbia. I had planned to clean up and repaint the Traveler but after getting it home I realize it's just too nice, so I'll clean it...
For sale is a nice 1941 Colson frame badged as Wings (hardware store) I purchased this frame about 4 years ago from fellow member Kirkpatrick. He did all the heavy lifting of the orange paint that covered the original deep maroon paint. The original brazing shows up nicely at some of the joints...
Does anyone know of a source for (inexpensive/ affordable ) wheel discs? A few years ago there was a member making and selling them I believe they were called "Deko Discs", but he's since stopped.
