Keep a diary of your latest build here.
Got an all original 70s Schwinn Breeze from my wifes uncle. My wife rode it and fell in love so im going to rebuild it for her. She wants lite powder blue with all white tires (which i found for the s-6 rims ) white decals and white seat and grips. I figure that leaves me with the black schwinn seat and grips for another project it has a three speed that works great i polished a spot on the wheels,hubs,and handel bars and all will polish out great so im starting teardown tonight

My local bike shop only had all black for 12$ and I had wanted whitewall so I looked on ebay and found whitewall for 58$ each so that wasn't happining. But while looking around on ebay I found the all white 42$ free shipping for the pair the ad was for one set so I don't know if there are anymore
almost done. I am going to look for some white pedals and i need a new front caliper some how i broke the bolt that goes through it better pics tomorrow hopefully my lbs has a caliper the white decals really look good but they dont show up well in pictures
