    Well, i'm In. As the title says I still have to find a frame. I will be working with a fourm member-thepicklenat0r
    I need a 26" frame from the 80's. I don't really want diamond, I need to find cantilever.

    I will leave hints for the theme as I go.

    Re: Bike theme released-Schwinn Frame

    So today i did some true work to the bike and cut the original kickstand thing off.
    [​IMG]

    Since its so close to the end of the build, I am going to release the major idea/theme for the bike
    [​IMG]

    Since the Stainless steel(bare frame) got overwhelming, I am painting monday/tuesday. This baby is getting hte nice automotive paint as i think ive said before.

    There is another twist...

    Re: Bike theme released-Schwinn Frame

    because it is the coolest hybrid ever come on mr fusion!
    because it came with a huge rebate check after they went out of bizz
    because who would want to smash up one of those purdy black toyota trucks with the cool tripple roll bar, end up broke, fat, and have some punk kids.
    (sorry dude had to do it good luck with the bike) :mrgreen:
