Hey Albert and OBI
I found this frame and fork in pretty rough shape. I found a set of original paint fenders from a ladies DX with the holes for the lacing. I figured I would give the bike a paper boy theme. The lacing on the back fender would keep the paperbags out of the spokes. I sandblasted the frame, fork and rims then gave it a pantina paint job to match the fenders. The extra seat binder bolt is to hold the rack to the frame. It needed a rack for the paperbags.
While at the Cyclone Coasters ride this weekend I overheard two Coasters talking about Schwinn Double Curved Bar Roadsters. So I volunteered to their conversation that I had one. Not sure they entirely believed me as I also mentioned that it was a Tall frame. Anyway decided to post images even though this is a work in progress. Really waiting for some nice fenders to add to the look. BTW I love the style of these bikes.
Charles (obiquepen) I was one of the guys at the table talking about the roadsters. It was not that I didnt believe you that had the stunned look on my face, I was just so surprised that we could be talking about such a rare bike, in a tall frame version no less, and find that the guy at the next table has one. I would have been even more stunned if I could have seen how nice the bike really is.Only at a Coaster ride!. GREAT bike! See you at the next ride. Ron
Here's my 37' in the works. Polished truss fork and cranks...I'm in need of a set of chrome drop center Schwinn wheels if anyone has a set for sale..Also would really like to have the 20" taller version as I'm a taller guy!! If anyone has one and wants to sell/trade let me know..
