    Love the little details here, the chain, gears, grips, seat, paint. It all goes together well.

    I don't want to be a hater, but at the beginning of this thread, I thought this bike was gonna be a bad idea with some good elements thrown in....but, the "finished" post on April 10 changed my mind entirely. This bike is awesome.

    Good job. :D

    A big THANKS everyone for the great feedback. This was a build that sorta had a mind of its own. it rides really cool
    Hey Gdcast That is a REALLY BIG FLAG!
    custombikebuilder, KMC does make a 2-tone chain, but its like 30 bucks shipped and the 2 chains were 7 bucks apiece at the swapmeet. besides the 2 tone chain is stock, mine is unique? :shock:
    Bicycle808, Don't be hate'in [just kidding] at the start, I was not sure where this was going ..it just went and i like where it went. This is now one of my favorites...[actully they are all my favorites..thats why I can't sell any..? :shock: :mrgreen: ]

    I know what ya mean about a build having a "mind of its own", but surely you had some kind of visionary skillz to make something like this turn out so nice. I just have a few questions:
    With the front half of the frame being what it is, is it a Schwinn? does it fit, look, sound, or feel like a schwinn? similar at all? :shock: :wink: :mrgreen:

    Yes I'll admit,itsa Schwine,.. the back 1/2 is schwine also, so the frame is circa. 1953/72
    ...Some time you have an idea, but not sure how it will turn out. Either it will be really cool..or..sooo ugly, it turns out really cool. Like a dog you might find at the pound [ rescue] :shock: :idea: :lol: :arrow: :mrgreen:
    THANKS for the comps! everyone :mrgreen:

    Ha, I happen to like schwinns, most of em, anyway. I happen to like a lot of other bikes, too.

    This one is definitely awesome, and I guess it qualifies as a schwinn, but it's hardly like anything else with the Schwinn badge on it..
