I found a cool little 24 inch schwinn on craigslist and had to have it. I have a soft spot for 24 inch schwinns with tanks and especially maroon ones since a maroon 24 inch is what got me started in bikes. The guy i got it from said he dad wrote whats on the back fender on pretty much everything he had and that it was his Dads when he was a kid! It’s all complete but the paint is really rusty in some spots. Tank is solid though and it’s all there. If anyone is interested i will be selling once i clean it a bit. Thanks!

Cleaning up pretty decent actually. Chrome on the wheels isn’t done yet will post pics when it is but its cleaning up pretty well after enough scrubbing. Was a little confused on the serial though as it says its a 64 but nothing on the bike looks that new and the wheels are double knurl s2’s. Ivory on frame is nice, maroon is what it is but theres no pitting and still some paint left on it. Chainring looks great to me. Have the seatpost and clamps soaking in apple cider vinegar right now. Bet it will make a cool rider for a kid getting into the hobby!!

It came out great! Nice work. Glad you kept the Stolen FR.GA...... artwork on the rear fender. There's gotta be an interesting story behind that

A rough diamond polished to an original glow with new wave. Nice job considering the condition it was in.
