    cut the head tube on forks, weld/put spacer in there, make sure the little hole that holds the washer that has the notch in it faces backwards - bikes look TOUGH - frame is awesome - lookin' cool, T. You could weld it when you have the hole on back lower bar welded.

    I will probably get a new sprocket because I'm really not liking the schwinn one on this bike.

    frontend looks much better now.

    as far as seat post goes- i flipped mine over and used the wider end of it to mount a seat to it. worked just fine.

    what size is the seatpost? if its 5/8" any schwinn clamp from the 50's or 60's will work without a problem(dont know about the nanner seats but the mesinger and troxel do) hope this helps

    I think it is a 5/8 post. Where can i get a schwinn clamp from? I have been trying to look for some a while back and had no luck. :(

    wooo sorry! So far I primed the bike and was sanding it down with 400 grit paper. I should have paint sometime this week I just have to clean up my garage because we had a yard sale over the weekend.
