    After a quick acid dip, found a small crack on the left seat stay that will need some loving but otherwise the frame is in great shape.

    Bf Goodrich help with year

    Picked up from the local CL for cheap to build a neighborhood cruiser. Looks like someone took this bf Goodrich, repainted it and dressed it up with parts from a newer schwinn. Need some hep figuring out a year for the frame and fork. Thanks!

    Cool little bike. I'm glad I was on vacations and never even saw it haha. Below one came out for $125 on CL (el Paso), didn't see it until it was sold too.
