    1957 Corvette Refresh!

    Thanks ozzie. Interesting thought ozzie. I will mull that over. I two finger brake on everything from bicycles to motorcycles. Even if it is a full length lever I may never use three fingers. The reason I ended up with these levers is I wanted all silver - lever and mount. They are hard to find...

    41 dx klunker build

    Super Klunker Cooper! Great outcome. :sunglasses:

    1957 Corvette Refresh!

    Personalizing my bike a bit. Pretty much in its road going fashion now. Or neighborhood hooligan fashion. Ames grips. A fine copy of the great tacky Ourys. Grew up with them. 2nd lay back post slid in - lets see how long this one lasts... Tool bag... Tube, co2's cartridges (16 gram), tyre levers...

    1965 Schwinn Heavy Duti King Size klunker

    Oh the possibilities! Great build coming up IMO sworley. I am doing similar. For me, a stripped down 26" cantilever bike is the Sting Ray for us aging thrashers. Be glad to see what you do.

    Cleaned up the 79 spitfire 5

    Nice clean up. The Schwinn red always looks good. I seem to be stuck on red bikes myself.

    AMP Research

    I still have my bought new '93 Mongoose Amplifier. Bought it as a frameset. Rode it for years. Yup pretty flexy, but at 24.5 pounds I learned smooth riding and sprints. Fast bike. Don't stand and stomp, the front & rear wheels will be out of parallel lol. Sit & spin... The Horst link is timeless...

    Dropout Savers?

    I received my Helix & Crupi frame savers/chain tensioner. The Helix is available and classic in its design - simple. Cleaner than a big washer for frame protection... One of these will be going on my JTT bike. Just an fyi for a nice detail part.

    1957 Corvette Refresh!

    Interesting GTs. I like it. My opinion is on an angled back seat tube, with a long extended seat post it is just asking to bend. Cantilevered. Especially in the spindly 13/16" diameter. Even more so on a lay back post. I fit close to proper leg extension on bicycles, not the slammed low seat...

    Post your pics of 26" bmx cruisers

    My bike is finally ready for here. '57 Corvette minus the glass. Fresh wheels (back to 26" from 700c), '57 SA 3 spd hub, Mailard high flange front hub.

    1957 Corvette Refresh!

    More progress today. As in about finished. I can swap out a couple of parts anytime (tires, bars, seatpost, chain guard, gearing), but this is it. Final grips are not yet on. Simple. Underdone in my mind, but I wanted a large Sting-Ray like bike, yet with gears, for jammin it like in my old...

    1957 Corvette Refresh!

    They are labeled BS, GT... Yup... Business Schwinn!! Lol But ya, need M&S this time of year.

    1957 Corvette Refresh!

    Finally! My 26" wheels are on. Now the bike has the proper balance. 700c is just wrong on a cantilever frame IMO. New chain & 20t rear sprocket (from 18t). Working on bolting up longer reach brakes & cables. Got two replacement seatposts, one straight & one laid back. I went lay back post first...

    Me, 73-74 ish on my Yamaha Moto-Bike. Polaroid.

    Dropout Savers?

    Ok, I ordered the Crupi chain tensioner/dropout saver and the Helix dropout saver. Helix site looks sketchy but I ordered off of it. I'll post up when I receive...

    Dropout Savers?

    Alrighty then! I think the Crupi can be ordered.
