It's much cheaper to buy all new parts than to have the Schwinn parts replated!! (But then it wouldn't be all Schwinn!!)
If you buy a corvette and replace the factory wheels, it's still a corvette. I'm sticking with the schwinn forks, neck and handle bars but for safety sake the wheels and maybe breaks need to be upgraded. Sometimes nostalgia has to give way to technological advances. Especially when you're bolting a motor onto a bicycle.
