Default Re: Help identify this old bike

So far my only experience is with 63 Schwinn Americans and both have been solid bikes. On the other hand I just ride them on either paved or logging roads and watch what I'm doing. Mine are not mountain bikes so I try to be fairly careful. I don't know, I suppose I'm pretty easy on a bike. I'll be doing a build on a 39 Elgin step through this winter so my 'research' will continue. Part of my interest in step through models is that being an elder I would like to do builds for kids my own age. Most will not be doing jumps or trying to go as fast as possible. Mounting the bike is an issue for elders. I also want it be be comfortable to ride, good brakes, easy to start.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
