I guess I own a Schwinn now.

Traded away a bmx racing bike I had for this, and some cash. Folding money takes the sting away a bit.

Now to get it into riding condition.

I guess it could be a 1951 D-12, who knows what it looked like originally.

Turned this bike

This is a Schwinn, but that is not the headbadge, this badge is far too small. 2-5/8" screw pattern, the frame is 3-1/4" holes.

Well, this is crazy, a Schwinn at my house, that I am kinda liking.

Anyway, it didn't take long to get a ride in. Old Schwinn dogleg crank I had in the barn, random 44t bmx chain wheel, new kmc chain, I had the bar and stem in the handlebar pile. VIOLA!

Just as I was getting ready to install the chain, the stormfront arrived, 50mph gusts, I had to move quick.

Rode it in the wind, crazy.

It's a pretty good rider. As it's already been primed, perhaps someday it will be painted.

Now it's in the garage, and the rain is here.

Well, here you go, 5150 Schwinn.

The Cali clan will understand my madness.
