Well, I just found this site, just did my intro a few days ago, and since I was rebuilding a bike anyway, and have pics of the progress, i'll go ahead and enter it. I know it's a bit late in the game, but i'm gonna enter it anyway, and if i don't make the deadline, i'll still have a bad *** bike. (butt haha thanks messageboard!) A little history on the bike: I bought this bike close to 5 years ago I think brand new from Walmart in the burbs of New Orleans. It's a Schwinn Fleet, and one of the cheaper schwinns, i'm assuming after the company change i've read about? This bike was my daily rider in the French Quarter, and also my work bike, as i was a courier for a lot of it's life. It's been wrecked, slammed, forgotten on drunken nights, and even lived locked up outside through the storm, and was only missing a seat when I was allowed to come back into the city. After the storm it delivered a couple thousands pizza pies. knowing this history, and all the havok myself and thousands of others faced, the name of this bike will be Katrina. I'm gonna tear it down, try and use as few of the original parts it came with, and so on. The first picture is how it was when I started this rebuild, and the following pictures will show the progress of the parts changes and my indecisiveness. it IS a working bike at start, but the complete tear down SHOULD be along the guidelines. pictures to follow, as i'm posting them now.
