    I had alot of fun Ratrodding this old Schwinn for the past couple months. So here is the before shot.[​IMG] And the forks.[​IMG] Here is the bike as it sits today.[​IMG][​IMG] Here are some close-ups of the changes I made to it. First I had to make the pivots for the fork and I had to add the pencil brace to the handle bars.[​IMG][​IMG] I also modified the seatpost for a more layed back feel and I made this rear tank which I also call the "trunk" I have now removed it so it had a more hot rod look for the other pics.[​IMG][​IMG] And lastly the modified chainguard. I swear I musta gained a few horse ( I mean human) power from the aerodynamics of this thing. :lol: :) :p this is also my favorite piece on this bike and is the attention getter.[​IMG] And a little home stripes (my first try with a brush)[​IMG][​IMG]

    Nice job on the build. I love the chainguard.

    I also really like the frame with the dual lower bars.

    Great looking bike.
