    I got my bars and chain guard from iRide Custom Bicycles, thanks man they cleaned up well :shock:
    Ordered some newer mtb pedals and reupholstered the seat with an old weatherproof suede jacket. :mrgreen:
    Removed all the stingray, flame, and occ stickers. Now there's ghost flames where they used to be.
    We also found some skull license plate bolts for the front brake mounts at wallyworld. :p

    COOL! Another chopper! 8)

    You asked about the brake posts on our forks . . . it never had them. I think your bike must be one of the later choppers sold. Schwinn sold some of the choppers without labeling them "O.C.C." (maybe to get out of paying royalties?) Some of these were equipped with the front brakes and/or front fenders. You might want to think twice before chopping off the posts on the forks. I would guess that maybe 85% of the choppers did not have front brakes. It should be easy to find a pair of legs without the brake posts, just be patient and then you can save the rare ones.

    Looks like you did a great job on the seat! I have been thinking about doing the exact same thing for my Spoiler.
    Let me know if yer wife needs a little more leg room . . . I can show how I modified the seat post/sissy bar for my bike to gain about an inch and a half. :wink:
