    Re: lil' rat

    does anybody mind if I switch frames? Id like to do the Skoot back to original over time.
    I had this schwinn built up as a 5 speed, but stripped it down...

    cool...I put the original forks back on, ditched the springer. Its a 1980 Schwinn Cruiser frame. It was like the Cruiser 5 but a 20".

    Nice.... I like it. I cant believe those fat tires will fit. That would be a serious beach/sand cruiser.

    Re: lil' rat

    it appears that the frame is a bit bigger than a stingray....might go 3 speed. I have a '69 SA 3 speed 20" rim and a COOL shifter :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
