Default My first build - 1960's Schwinn

Hey guys,

I picked up this Schwinn Tiger a few weeks ago and have been cleaning it up getting it ready for a motor. This will be my first motorized bicycle and I am really excited about building one.

I took apart and cleaned the rear hub which is a Bendix 2-speed hub with a lot of internal parts... Took me a few days to figure it all out but I got it back together. I will be building the wheel this week with 14g spokes and the original steel rim. I'm having a ton of fun and cant wait to put a engine in this sucker. I'm going with a in-frame 2-stroke - love the look.
