Default Re: Greetings from memphis, tn

This area is fairly level, except where I live. There are some steep inclines around my house, but my 66cc mounted on a 26" Cranbrook will take me to the top of the steepest one. I've tried peddling it and its just to much for me. I weigh 245 and am 70 years old. Bad combination for peddling uphill. I've been cleaning and painting parts from the old Schwinn. I'm not sure if I want to ride it, motorize it or just hang it in the shop to look at. I'll post some pictures when I get it finished. I got it out of a scrap yard and it was headed for the crusher. It has the Schwinn springer and a tank. I'm painting it Hunter green, trimed in dark Creme. I also have a 1960 Schwinn Wasp that will be my next project. I've kind of gotten into the vintage bikes. I would love to find a Black Phantom. I had a 1954 Black Phantom when I was a kid, but like most all boys, I beat it to death.
If I'd only know then..
