Riding my double-diamond C-Model. Yes, I said it.
Moving in a different direction here…

First off, this is a pieced together bike.
The long and challenging search for putting together a 1936 Schwinn Motorbike was completed in about 2 years. Countless inquiries, boxes at my door, and helpful people on the CABE made it happen. The thrill of the chase kept me going. I figured since I didn’t have the cash to buy a complete bike at the time I could just piece one together, but in the end I can’t justify the total cost of the parts with a restoration which will cost even more time and money. I will be looking for an original paint bike in the future.

This one was mocked up and ridden about 25 miles on different occasions, I can say it rode very nicely. The rear hub likely needs service, as the brake is a bit soft.

All parts will be shipped via BikeFlights or USPS, with tracking information. Quoted costs are to the lower 48 only. Anyone that buys more than one item gets combined shipping when possible. Please send payment: PayPal Friends and Family to [email protected]

I can email or text hi-res photos to you if you want more clarity, just let me know.
As Bob likes to say, “Thar she blows!”
