When on a little shakedown ride this morning around the hood on my 50's straight bar Schwinn. Sure does ride nice. View attachment 729796

Very cool bike Cory! Some nice parts on that frame. No wonder it rides so nice! I’m a believer that light wheels are the most important part on the bike that makes it responsive. You have some really nice wheels there!

I took advantage of my last day of vacation and spent some quality time with my bike and oh yeah, my son :mask:
We rode to our favorite coffee shop for breakfast but before we left, I gifted my '53 Panther to my 12 year old boy as he has officially outgrown his 24" of the same year. He was beyond stoked to be riding a 'big' bike and it just so happens that this bike in particular is about as smooth a rider as I own...you know the one ND rear hub that can actually skid!! The Panther is nice but not too nice which is perfect for him as I watched him jumping off curbs to test the Schwinn springer as I cringed and then just as quickly let it go...he's riding the bike exactly like a 12 year old should...the bike will hold up fine. It's a Schwinn after all.

When it came to taking pictures, he made sure HIS bike was in front!

Riding with a 12 year old is good for the soul!

That's beautiful! He's one lucky boy, and looks very pleased. Lovely gesture!

Thanks...it was really fun to see his excitement when we dropped the seat and lowered the bars...definitely a moment to cherish as he's on the cusp of a moody teen yet still a 'little guy' on the inside. Plus, to see him progress from a 20" Schwinn ballooner at age 5-6 to a 24" ballooner at age 9 to a standard ballooner at age 12 has been a really fun 'ride'.
