    Time to get started on a Christmas parade bike for this year. A while back, I found a bare frame and think it's an early style straight bar Schwinn?

    Think the original color was red but it's got two different shades of blue that someone added later. Haven't found any major cracks or bent places on it so it might make a good bike. Probably use a skiptooth setup. Got a pretty good set of fenders somewhere that will work. I've got an old Schwinn fork. Think I've got enough stuff to at least get it riding. Got to buy some spokes.

    Sweet frame, lot of different directions you could go with that one.

    I found some old fenders that will work with this frame. Also got the fork issue that I had with it settled. Thinking about painting it black with white trim or may just let it stay rust color? I made some more pics but I'm having an issue downloading pics from the camera. I'll try to get some more pics posted soon! thanks!!!
