Re: 81' Schwinn Cruiser 5 Build (Picture Heavy)
i concur!! venice this bike is in the cruiser section, not the ratrod section. but i will agree with him on the wheels. you can get em nickel plated or paint the rims, but they are fine and heavy duty enough.painte em and tighten em up a little and that wheels set is worthy. id say run a jackshaft kit with that five speed. or if you do decide to buy new rims, niagarcycle has a badass wienmann hd39 front wheel with 12 guage spokes and wide rim, they also have a nexus internal 3 speed wheel for 90 bucks. run those two wheels and a jackshaft kit and ya have yourself one heavy duty smooth ride.no u wont be able to run the five speeds with the grubee axle and no you dont have to run that cheap chines drum brake that comes with it.
if it aint kustom, it just aint.....
