Exactly! Turn the seat post around, horizontal dropouts with adjusters and the old Schwinn straight bar design up above. It would be a one of a kind, awesome bike. The Colson was well made. You don't have to do anything much to make it look old because it is old. I hope you do it because I'd like to see it.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
