Here's my 39/40 Century badged Schwinn DX. I had it for sale, but I wouldn't ship it. LOTS of interest with people pleading to have me pack it up. But now...I'm keeping it! Oldest Schwinn I've ever had, so this one stays with me.

Two years ago I built this ‘40 frame up with borrowed parts I had lying around. It lasted this way for a weekend then came back apart. It was the worst riding bike I’ve ever built! Planning to get it built up again properly this winter with era correct components.

You’re not wrong but it was still pretty bad with the standard front ring. The hub had a large “gap” between going forward and grabbing the brake. Is that just a trait of Morrow hubs? I’ll be using the same gear ratio the next time around and I’m really hoping to tighten that up somehow.
