    I originally found this one on Craigslist over a year ago and decided to stash it away and wait for this years MBBO. It was restored some years back but then parted out before I acquired the frame/fork and various other parts. I ended up tossing the original fork in the dumpster (after killing it good & dead) because it wouldn't properly seat. Fortunately I had a suitable replacement off a parted out Schwinn Fairlady and as a bonus the blues are nearly identical. I found the seat and sissy bar on Facebook in separate deals, the rest of the parts were unearthed from my supersecret stashâ„¢.

    Here's a list of the junk I used....................

    NOS Troxel shorty banana seat
    Stock Murray seat post bent to accommodate the shorter seat
    Vintage 48" sissy bar
    NOS Goodyear Grasshopper slick
    Schwinn fork, front wheel, bars and stem from a '68 Fairlady
    NOS Hunt Wilde grips and checkered flag valve caps

    Thanks! Yeah, it is a very nice rider but the seat could use a little more padding. I always choose style over comfort. ;)

    Great looking build! I'm currently restoring a girls Eliminator that looks very much like this.
