    Here are a few of mine...

    My 1978 Schwinn Klunker (or Spitfire, not sure) 5speed. Got it for free from my boss when I worked at the LBS a few years ago. Too bad it doesn't have any of the "guts" for the rear drum brake. "retrofitted" a set of sidepulls on the rear to replace the drum brake. An old picture and I have a chainguard on its way for it.

    My 1962 Schwinn Heavy Duti American single speed. The one bike i've had the longest of any of my bikes and my first cruiser bike, has since 1992. Bought it for only $15 and although may not be the cleanest, coolest cruiser... but she's a Schwinn!

    Others not pictured yet, 1960 Schwinn World 3speed roadster project, 2008 Schwinn Point Beach 7speed cruiser and my newly aquired 1968 Schwinn Racer 3speed.

    2009 Schwinn Classic Al Three, which I just assembled over the weekend. It was still in its factory wrappings up to that point. It's aluminum framed, so its relatively light for a cruiser. I built it up as something of a bobber, mounting the front fender on the rear for a bobbed look. I used Electra Blanc et Noir wheels with a Nexus 3-speed hub that's shifted by a NOS Shimano Click Stick. I used Velo Orange handlebars and Newbaum cloth bar tape to wrap it. The picture shows the stock saddle, but I've since changed it out for a black riveted Brooks clone.
