Start your RRB Build Off Journal here!
Well here we go I am gonna be starting with this 1974 Schwinn frame I have no idea what it was but because it's painted like the American Flag and Schwinn made an American so, it's a Schwinn Young American So, young is for me because I'm 13 And My donor bike is gonna be a Schwinn chopper that I will be getting in a few days I'm trying to get that all american gasser look
I now present to you The Young American
And my crank, which is currently getting sandblasted
Here's some inspiration

looks like a good start

Hey, don't be stealing my year! haha
Check out my Build-Off bike: ☆ 1936 Off-Roadmaster Klunker ☆
Don't worry, it's a 1974
Cool idea for your bike build! I'm watching to see what you do with the chopper parts.
When I saw the title, I immediately thought of the drag race car by famous custom car builder, Carl Casper. MPC produced a 1/25 scale model kit of the beautiful red, white, & blue dragster back in the day! Search Google images for "Carl Casper Young American" and click on the photo of the car doing a burn-out . . . it's the one on this page at the bottom. . . . http://www.kustomsofamerica.net/carl_casper.htm but the Google image can be enlarged.
Check out the car and you will find an awesome idea for your bike. ( hint-look closely at the right, front wheel. It’s an “engine-turned” aluminum ring and kind of like a partial “Moon disc”. It was used so the cycle wheel would trip the timing lights at the dragstrip!)
Keep up the good work and all the best on yer build!
My Intro <((><
Jesucristo es mi Señor y Salvador!
Put on my seat and sissy bar today and redid my badge Also got my conduit for my wheelie bar today (not pictured) Hopefully I will be getting my chopper tomorrow and the build will really get moving Oh yeah, I took the old peeling stickers off and polised up the frame so the paint isn't as dull
Some nice chain with one blue link
And some freshly painted pedals
Did some work today now that I got my parts Took the green flames off the triple trees and was gonna mock them up but my stem had a different plan It was STUCK I can't get it out, I tried WD-40, Break-Free. and heating the bottom up. Nothing Anyone know of some other ways
Well, here's the forks
And cleaned some parts
Finally got the stem off I still have to cut it down, probably tonight
