    Picked this up on the cheap. Butt ugly but with potential. Going into my stash of parts to update this puppy. Took it apart and started today. Will probably take a week or so to put it back together the way I want to. As usual, got it on the cheap for 50 duckets!

    From what I found on the web they make a good bicycle. Cant remember exactly but been making bikes for like 20 years or more in Texas

    I have a black one. I'm thinking of making a klunker out of it..

    Would make a good Klunker. Frame is solid with some nice welds. Rims on tires have heavy gauge spokes. Has the handle bar stem already on bike to put some BMX bars on it.

    And it has a 'Schwinn' seat on it, so it's got going for it.....which is nice.

    Wouldn't try to do any serious off-road with that hub though, they're ok for casual use but not super strong.

    I was hoping no one would notice that but some black paint will take care of it!

    Finished it today. Installed chain, adjusted shifter cable and cleaned up. Very cool bike! Heavy duty frame and rims with thick spokes. Rides like a Top!
