    My wife found this 1962 3 speed Schwinn Racer on facebook guy only wanted $30. I love the peaked front fenders. 20160801_223039_resized.jpg 20160801_223207_resized.jpg After I clean it up some I think I will put some white wall tires on it.

    Nice find. Two trips to McDonald's for lunch and you guys could spend 30 bucks . Can't beat that deal.

    I've gotten a couple nice deals off Facebook. You did very well on that. You're in luck about the tires: Kenda is selling white walls again in the Schwinn S5/S6 size. For a long time, new tires were only black or gum wall, but Kenda has white walls again. They'll look great on that bike.
