Start your RRB Build Off diaries here!
First time entering a build off. I picked up this gem on CL. Gladly paid $20 for it and brought it home. When my darling wife saw it she asked how bad a bike had to be for me to NOT bring it home! So I decided to call this build ROCK BOTTOM.
Pretty sure it is a 1949. Could someone help with the model?
Going to tear it down and see what I can save

Sweet find...and what a price...those never turn up in my neck of the woods. I say you put a new tube and tire on the front and ride it into the sunset. It is pretty...great original frame paint.

I would've paid $20 for the fork, and my wife would've rolled her eyes then smiled.
Can't wait to see this one come back to life.

HiaWhatThe? RRB #7 build
Nice! I don't know what she's talking about at least yours is complete and still has a little paint. I drag them home like this:
I love how the frame darts are forever etched in the rust.
I swear I'm not a hoarder......
It doesn't matter what I paid for it, it matters what it's WORTH. I never buy anything I will regret KEEPING.
Lots of potential
Good luck with the build!

20 Dollars for a strait bar Schwinn! Nice!! I'd say overhaul the works and usually I say air and ride but unfortunately that front tire is beyond patching! haha What is the serial number I could tell ya the month and year probably tomorrow, also location of serial number?
