    Tossing my hat in the ring with this, this is the definition of a Class I build. All I've got planed so far is cleaning and replacing the tires.

    It's a really nice survivor for sure who ever owned this bike really liked it. Mocked up the wheel set with the new tires, rebuilt the front hub and replaced a missing spoke in the rear wheel.
    Also have the guts from the rear wheel soaking with all the little bits.

    Messenger seat is in really nice shape, and that curved sissy bar is super sweet.
    The Schwinn reflector is nice to.

    Cleaned and repacked the rear hub, also scrubbed the rust off the rims, polished and trued the wheels, cleaned up the pedals.

    Cool cool bike! Love the tire selection. Noticed this bike has a 36 spoke rear wheel and 24 spoke front. Never seen that before.

    Very cool pieces on that, sissy bar, bars.

    Interested in the seat cleaning process when you get to it, wonder if peroxide or peroxide baking soda would pull the yellowing out. Ive seen peroxide brighten up some pretty scroungy grips.

    I think the drastically staggered spoke count is exotic....guess we all have our own version of odd...:p

    I wonder if that drastic spoke difference is original? @jungle t You're the expert on all things Barracuda. What say you?

    Great info jungle t. The 36 hole rear wheel on the early musclebikes is interesting. Price of replacing the 36h rear wheel on a early '64 Stingray is what pushed me towards the resto-mod path. Guessing they must have only had 36h hubs for musclebikes when they first started.

    IMG_1446.JPG IMG_1453.JPG IMG_1452.JPG IMG_1451.JPG Hi guys just finally got around to breaking down and cleaning up my rare 66 3 speed barracuda . One very rare bike . Stick shift came out in 67 in green and maroon and this is a 66! In this green blue color and the fish on the chain guard has the barracuda name above it which they never did . Cool transition bike for sure . Take a look turned out nice .
