I am wanting to find a winter project that I can do in the basement. I want to build a single speed, coaster brake play bike. I have read the term Klunker or Bomber used, so something like that. I like the lines of the older Schwinns, Typhoons, Corvettes, etc. I will need something that will hold up to my weight, 250 lbs, to do some mild trail riding. I have heard some of the old Schwinns referred to as middleweights and I don't understand what that refers to.
Any suggestions on a year or model I should look for? Any other makes to look at?
