    68 Schwinn Typhoon

    Last week, I swapped most of the parts that were on my typhoon on to a bare wtp avenger frame i had. I bought new tyres, grips and pedals but many of the other parts i used were salvaged from parts bikes. A while ago i bought a sturmey archer thumb shifter on amazon that was advertised to work...

The seller bought it 5 years ago and left it outside the entire time she owned it as shown in the last photo. As you can see all the chrome...

    Ladies Electra Cruiser 1

    True. I have chrome bars i was lucky to find at a dealer. The black bars on my panther came off a schwinn debutante i bought really cheap. The electra attitude bars are really nice too but have the smaller 22mm clamp. Not easy to find. Same bar was standard on the straight 8 and a few other...

    Ladies Electra Cruiser 1

    Beautiful bike, she will love more because dad built it. I built a slik chick with a candy paint job for my daughter last year that she says she will always treasure. for
