Saw a CL ad on Friday for a Schwinn straight bar ballooner with a bent fork. Worked out a deal with the seller and ran down and grabbed it before he headed out of town for the weekend. Got it home and unbent the fork and starting thinking about what I could do with it. I had been collecting some parts and decided to mock it up to see how it would look. Here's how it looked when I got it home... I ended up giving it the Klunker treatment with some cool parts I had. I recently picked up the gold ARAYA wheel set from someone on the RRB FB group and thought they'd be perfect. Has a Schwinn high flanged hub up front and a Bendix 76 our back. I had an old Sidewinder fork which also was a perfect fit. Topped it off with a Matthews stem, Persons saddle, Sugino chainring, SR Tubular hollow one piece crank and a set of Suntour bear traps. Haven't hardly had a chance to ride it because it was in the 20's here today....and I hate the cold.
