This bike belongs to Sam D. who enjoys collecting his/hers Schwinn bicycles from the 60’s and 70’s. This Violet beauty is teaming up with a 66 Violet Collegiate I rehabbed for Sam last year. The paint is stunning and the decals are very nice for a 55 year old bicycle. Sam plans to have me out on a set of whitewall tires and a deluxe Violet and White S saddle on it to make the bike look and ride like new!

And so it begins. Sad, dirty and neglected – but going to look like new in 7 days or less!
Remember this nastiness when you see them gleaming on the finished bike later this month.
Parts ready to be transformed.
