HARPO

Cruisin' on my Bluebird
I've been absent for a few months, but I'm back! Just got this 1960 Schwinn Continental yesterday with the Simplex "suicide" shifter from the original owner. As found condition. I'll do my usual story and barrage of photos a little later. Decals look unreal!

Wore out three sets of tires already!
Well, I've got boxes of parts piling up for projects I haven't gotten around to unpacking but I was lucky enough to pick up a bike this week. It's been a while since I've found one in the wild!

'56 BFG badged Red Phantom dubbed "El Rojo" all original down to the BFG Silvertown tubes with the exception of light cover which is a 50's phantom replacement...

Look Ma, No Hands!
Continuing the 1 speed project, I made the rear wheel for it the other day. Turned out good. I spent a hour revitalizing an NOS rim that had oxidation pitting in my utility sink, 400, then 600 then buffing wheel. I have a matching rim, so when I get a hub I can make the front wheel. Still trying to figure out the correct BB spacing. I found an old Baylis and Wiley spindle that may work, turns out the BB cup must have a certain thickness for the locking to be right. Searching for a crank.
