    Here you can dramatically see the difference in the 20" tall frame. The head tube and forks.

    Don't think he was wanting to fit-in or ride between the bars...

    Nice bike, how about some more pics.
    And the question inquiring minds want to know, what's the extra seat binder bolt? If that's what it is.

    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

    Please install stem bolt before any rides! I'd hate to see any damage to this fine Excelsior! [It's especially sharp with-out any fenders!].

    That's it. We gotta have a Double Bar ride here in SoCal! How cool would it be to see different manufacture's versions of the same frame design side by side!
