Thanks everyone for the compliments. I've been riding this thing like crazy!
ExtraBlaze: It's not quite the stock rake. The part of the fork where the bolt goes through that the legs pivot on (fork crown?) has been switched around. On the old Schwinn forks it is offset so if you put it on backwards it rakes out the fork. It actually lowers it quite a bit too.
I was looking at this bike yesterday and decided I needed some better valve caps instead of just the black plastic ones that came with the tubes. After some quick sculpting, sanding, and paint this is what I came up with.
thats awesome! could you make me some?

Stretch- Maybe one of these days I'll spend some actual time and make a good sculpt and them cast them in resin. I made these quick out of super sculpey and they're a little bit brittle. I guess I'll see how they hold up.
I think this is the last thing I'm going to add to my bike for now. I picked up a tea infuser on clearance from Cost plus for 50 cents, and a dollar store led light to make a taillight. A little bit of drilling and some glue and I had a new taillight for under two bucks. I used the handle from the tea thing to make the bracket, and the light is actually fairly bright.
Well I finally got the shifter sorted out. Originally I was using the hose clamp to hold the cables around the twist shifter. The problem was that after a few shifts the cables would start to get slack in them. With a few bolts and some washers the problem is solved. It's shifting through all the gears and is a great ride. Now I just need to get the final pics.

The pin you pull to shift down, it comes out under the tank and between the cantilever bars. I think I need a bit bigger ring as this one is a little hard to grab.
