Shout out to @bobcycles for selling me this awesome blue on blue Schwinn BC. Saw it at copake and hesitated on buying it, turns out bob bought it. Next day at the auction we talked about it and agreed to make a deal on it once he got back to Cali. Got a chainring and crank for it from @mongeese and I have a seat for it and handle bars and stem are on the way. Been looking for a blue on blue Schwinn for 3 years now that I could afford, and finally got one! Super excited to finally have a prewar springer Schwinn and its my favorite color combo!

When I was 10 years old, I wanted a Campus Green, Schwinn Typhoon in the worst way.

Well, I’m 59 now, and I finally landed my dream bike. Lol!
Thanks, Bob!

Ok so I originally wanted to get a aluminum delta torpedo light for my bike but i see they are quite expensive and don’t really want to put $400 out for a light. So i was wondering if a delta silver ray would be correct. Do the silver rays take batteries in the light themself or do they need wires that connect to a battery tube to work.

A typical Delta front load Torpedo painted aluminum would work pretty well, and would at least look the part.
I have a 3 rib as well painted white. If i painted like a dark blue to match the bike would that work?

Just mocked it up today to get it out of the basement. Looks good from a distance for now as I need to fix the dents in the fenders and straighten the braces. Probably going to get some dark blue paint to match and fix the big scratches in it too. These aren’t the handlebars i’ll keep on it just a place holder until the ones for the bike get here. Just needed to get it out in the sunlight and out of the basement!

Put together, this time correctly with the correct bars and thanks to Bob U the whizzer spring to make it ride firmer. Going to finish waxing it tomorrow but it’ll look great once finished. Here it is so far!
