    image.jpg image.jpg My friend Nick was nice enough to donate this 65 Schwinn Typhoon so I could build to nice reliable bike to ride around our lot at the trucking company where I work. Since I had parts laying around, I built this thing fenderless with a set of balloon wheels and knobby tires, stingray bars etc. It will be locked in the guard shack at night and used during the day. Probably take it home for the weekend. Great rider!

    A996DD4F-30E4-4E00-B75F-05056E0910CD.jpeg Cool to see this thread again, some pretty sad news though( not about the bike). Our place of business closed after 49 years of service yesterday. I don’t know how to act, I am unemployed along with many other great people. Hopefully in my next venture I’ll be lucky enough to be able to ride a bike on the job again. We’ll see....
