Look Ma, No Hands!
My first vintage bike that started it for me. Back in 2018 while doing my job delivering packages I had a delivery for a salvage yard. While pulling in I noticed one of the guys pushing a couple old bikes out of the garage. I delivered the package to the shop then walked over and asked the guy if he planned on selling the bikes. He said he was looking to get $40 for it. It was really rusty n crusty and I first thought it was too far gone. So I said I’d think about it and a few days later I got it. Loaded it up in my delivery van and brought it home. The chain was froze up with rust, much like the rest of the bike was.. But with Lots of elbow grease, a torch, and determination I finally got it rideable.. 1 year earlier my mom and I were salvaging barnwood from a local barn and she kicked at something in the ground, picked it up and it turned out to be a late 20s Elgin motorbike switch tool box tank. So when I got the 35 Schwinn home I called my mom and asked her to bring that tank over to see if it would fit the bike. The tank fit the bike perfectly so she said I could have it!
