Cruisin' on my Bluebird
It is finished now. I know it has no great monetary value, I just used this nearly free complete bike to learn a bit about restoration of old bicycles. Since it was painted black by a previous owner many years ago there was nothing to preserve, and the mish mash of parts made it interesting. I learned a bit about Schwinn S-6 wheels and tires. ( uh huh, the hard way.) I got a little practice in rattle can painting. The new (to me) Rust-O-Leum spray cans are sure better than rattle cans of old. So, for a couple of weeks during Covid quarantine, I stayed busy in the shop on this project. I do agree that this head badge came from a Schwinn frame and was riveted to the Snyder frame a bit off center. I left it that way. I call this the SSS Oldie. Snyder-Shelby-Schwinn of unknown vintage with a Persons seat. I took it to a local upholstery shop and had the owner fix me up with some pad, foam and faux leather cover , along with advice on what adhesives to use. Pretty easy.

yeah, I missed a dent there didn't I ? There are a few other wrinkles .
Looks pretty damn good for a quick, cheap Rattle can restoration of a freebie bike. Nothing but blood, beers and a little elbow grease will take you far... Great job all around.. RideOn... Razin...
