Riding a '37 Dayton Super Streamline
after spending countless hours making the paint look like paint again I decided it was time to ride it.... well..... 75% of it. these are the coaster brake wheels from the parts bike and new tires and tubes. I am going to respoke the original wheels and I wanted to ride it TODAY. I am still working on the paint so this is as far as I care to assemble it right now...

wonder how many years it has been since a person rode this bike? :)
That's the part I like is when you rescue something and make it serviceable after many years is thinking about the person who first got the bike and you reliving that joy all these years later. V/r Shawn

Good job! Come a long way and it up and going! How do you like it? They are great riding bikes. Where is your badge?

I like these bikes, that's why I got this one, I have a 1960 Racer in the small frame, but with S-7 wheels. these parts wheels I put on roll and brake good but are not true. I didn't ride too far as the grips I put on the handle bars were loose. badge is in a baggie with the screws.

can't wait to get the 3 speed wheels going. I haven't had a 3 speed since I was 8 or so.

I was inches away from looking at a Racer as well as a COPPERTONE Colleigiate 5 speed locally but was able to control the urge.

The 3 speed if working correctly makes all the difference. They really move out. Stay strong. Can't stop at one. Or a few!

putting the brakes and fenders together. original cable and housing up front, the rear housing is pretty beat, anyone have some 1950 Schwinn brake cable housing? brakes feel good I must have put them back together correctly. I have some NOS brake shoes for one set.
