    Installed Mr. Tick Bars, Dia Compe brakes and double goose neck. Rides smooth as a cruiser should.

    Garage sale find. Actually my father picked this up from a friend of his who was going to put it on the garage sale but I told him I'd take it. It's a one owner 1946 Schwinn. The guy saved up during the war to buy a bike for his paper route and as soon as they became available again this is what he got. This thing is completely original including the tires and tubes which are still soft, hold air, and ride great. The patina is perfect to me. Just a bit of fading and some chippy paint here and there. Although a klunker build would be fun, I won't be touching this one.

    This frame was handled by Emory in the late 70s early 80s. No one is quite sure who truly produced the frame. I had it chromed.

    Some of the parts in the build are:

    Sun MTX rims.
    DT Swiss Spokes
    2-speed Sturmey Archer kickback rear hub with matching front hub.
    base of stem is from a vintage Huffy. Clamps are True Torch.
    Oakley grips
    snakebelly tires
    Gusset Prosecutor pedals
    Landing Gear fork
    Brooks saddle
    Soma headset
    Redline Device cranks

    Yo, Johnny...what are those handlebars and where can I get a set?

    I just picked the cheapest MX handlebars from the german ebay page: KR Universal Lenker motocross 810 mm x 180 mm Dirt Bike,Pit Bike, ATV, Handlebar | eBay
    I think they ship worldwide.
    I love these bars and their weight gives good balance to the heavy rear hub...
    Klunk on!
