    1964 Scwhinn ladies bike....what model?

    Thanks Wildcat. I do believe it is an American Deluxe. The chain guard is chrome and the inside of the bottom bracket is blue (Radiant?). I like the red that it was repainted at one time, but it wasn't a great paint job so my uncle may want me to repaint it to it's original color. Is there a...

    1964 Scwhinn ladies bike....what model?

    Well, I have another build HERE, but I bought a Schwinn Tandem bike and my wife wants it redone for our Vintage Rental business as an item to be rented out for photo shoots, weddings and events so it will hopefully be ready in 1-2 weeks since it took precedent to my other build, which really...

    Dear Darlin' Donna

    Well, my initial plan is to keep the color and patina with some clear, but once I get new wheels and tires will determine if I stay with that plan or not. And thanks for the welcomes.

    Dear Darlin' Donna

    Well, this will be my first time involved in the RRBBO and pretty much my first build ever. We'll see how far I get and how far of a competition I am with all the talented people on here.

I went back to see how much and got them both for $40. I haven't really checked how old they are. Probably not old at all...

    Hello from Houston

    Well, Spring, TX to be exact, which is about 30 miles north of downtown Houston. I kind of wish I didn't find this site because I'm sure it will be addicting as I am digging a lot of the bikes on here and aspire to build one soon. My addiction of buying cheap vintage bikes was because my wife...
