Here is my current project. It is a 1939 Colson. I started with just the crank and sprocket.

As always, got my hands full

Maybe that's why I can't seem to be able to finish any of them.;)

Thanks! The clipper turned out great, as for the pacemakers status I currently have too many projects on my hands and its been put in the shed and also on the fence about selling it.

Nick.

Nice job cleaning up the Clipper. Cool bike! Your Mercury Pacemaker looks awesome. What do you plan on doing next to the Mercury Pacemaker?

love these old hanging tank schwinns.:)
What type of seat is on this bike? I have one just like it but have no idea what it goes on. Anyone out there that could help me out? It has the metal lip around the outer edge, just like this one.

It's called a streamlined mesinger . It's the saddle usedv
On high end prewar Schwinns , such as the aerocycle , cycle plane, etc. They are my favorite saddle . I'm 6'3 215 so they hold up well for big guys like me.

This bad boy is another project I have. I sent the seat out to have it redone. Bob gave me the good news today that the seat is finally done. I should have it in 3-4 days. Can't wait. Will post photos.

So far so good. Made some head way. With an additional 1 million dollars invested in it, I will have a really cool $700 bike ;-)



A true money pit!
