Not sure if this was a custom or if its something that was actually manufactured. What is it?
It's a real bike... Got the rest?
Nah... I found it in this pile. I'm sure there's parts to complete it though.
Look at the first few posts in the show us your muscle bike thread. There's one there, but not identified. On page 10 there's a factory ad for the AMF Flying Wedge and another post about it.
+1 on the flying wedge id. Cool bikes, just check for weld failure above the bottom bracket. (common problem)
I wanna visit that field.
Yeah, what's the story on that? The bikes look like they haven't been there very long...and most of what I see is ten speeds and newer cheap bikes but I'm sure there must be more gold stashed in there with the riff raff.
Thats only a third of the field! he has 3-4 sheds with higher end bikes and a few vintage cruisers. What he does have a ton of is vintage 80's bmx but idk anything about those so not sure what to even look for. I'll probably be there next tuesday again and take some random pics and see if ya'll recognize anything. Picked up this up while i was there last. Tandem has the seat post broken off in there sooo not sure what to do. Drum brake, not sure of manufacturer and also the fender set that he claims is schwinn but not sure how to tell for sure.
Good luck with the seat post. I have bits of a sissy bar stuck in a dragstripper frame,that's really thin metal and it's not going anywhere.
That's gonna take a long time of soaking in some sort of rust dissolver...Once the rust has left town there should be enough space to allow it to move a bit easier.
I'd try to rig up some sort of plug fro the top , turn it upside down and pour it full of evaporust, oxalic acid solution, molasses mix, or your own favorite brand of rust stuff.
Got it! Took a small chisel and started hammering! A few hours later i got through one of the sides and then the rest of the seat post fell into the frame. The seatpost was so rusted it was like someone had welded it to the frame.
Now that's some perseverance.
The "Hoarders" TV show people aren't coming to my apartment after seeing this photo of Bikefield.

Good job on the seatpost. Cheaper than Evaporust too.
As far as those fenders, the braces look like Wald replacements with those oval holes in the ends. If they were round holes and had been factory riveted to the fender I'd say Schwinn is a good guess.
Which model is the tandem? That chainguard has that fin like protrusion at the back like a Stingray based MiniTwinn.. . The wheels and frame look like it is a 26 inch wheeled bike?
Yep! 26in Schwinn Twinn! Bummer that the rear seat post is stuck too.
amf flying wedge or fast ones as well it is missing the frame inserts and those are impossible to find make a good custom build looks to be 1969 ish
dang where is this place located? looks like a goldmine for bikes
Couer d'Alene ID... Unfortunately the man that has been running a repair shop from his garage recently got robbed. They took all his bike tools and he has decided to stop being in the bike business.
