Gimletbikes

Finally riding a big boys bike
This is my first restoration of a classic. I'm a design engineer for a retail display company, bicycle enthusiast and experienced mechanic. This Schwinn isn't mine, I'm restoring it for my friend, who has owned this bike since he was 13 years old. His Pop bought it for him at JCPenney after much begging - and then made him work it off on Texas oilfields in the late '40s. He will be making the big decisions on this project and he will be watching here, too. I welcome input - I will likely be asking a lot of questions. I like collaboration and I want to do a good job with it. Thanks to all those who have already chimed in!
