My 58 Schwinn American. Found with longhorn red bars and massive chrome cyclecross pedals. The kind of pedals Ben Hur would have used if the Romans held bike races in the Hippodrome!

Hi,
I don't know, when I say I found it this way I mean found. ;) It was a rescue from the trash just like my teens Pierce. The occasional perk of working 27 years at a solid waste transfer station.

Cool rider. What rims and tires are one that, tires look huge for a middleweight.

If your referring to mine I don't know that either. They're modern rims. I think someone started with the frame and built it up. I couple month after I found the American an early 60s woman's Schwinn came in but the front end loader crunched her before I saw it. I salvaged what I could and thats where the bars, grips and pedals came from. As I recall from looking up the serial number it came off the line in November 1958, since I came off the line in March of 58 I figured it was meant to be and it and the Pierce I found dragged me into this cool and crazy hobby!
