Default Re: Greetings! I just bought my 1st Schwinn and I plan to modify the crap out of it

If you're trying to sell, the crown jewels would be worth about treefiddy lol

I've a "not real" Schwinn, I've pounded the heck out of it & it's served me very well - yours is sweet in that it's different, a straight bar frame w/twin top tubes? Defo cool & a tank will look awesome in there
I've built two 'non'Schwinns' that have served me well as well as the man who bought one of them. Both have over 1K miles and never a problem with the frames, the bearings, brakes or forks.

You go for it, Bro, and then ride past and laugh at those purest who don't know anything. I'll bet they even wear spandex.
