A friend of mine recently gave me an old junk bike he had sitting in his backyard. After looking at these forums it turns out its a 1980 Schwinn Cruiser 5. Head badge # 2770

I have all the original parts for it except for the original chain guard and fork. The bike doesn't have much collector value anymore since some nefarious previous owner took the serial number off. I'm working on painting it and I'll post pictures as soon as its done.

Here’s one I picked up today. It needs a detailing but i think it’s pretty cool. KP serial # , 0799 on the badge. I’m thinking this might have been a “klunker 5 “ that the owner had put a 2 speed up front with positron shifter, added fenders, springer, rack, and sturmey archer drum hub. I really like it but I bought on impulse and might have paid more than I really wanted too.

The 79's were Spitfires. Interesting build, something I've been thinking about doing for years.
