I look forward to seeing what you build!!
Thanks again Dan. I will remember about the front fender ... seems I've read where front fenders that vibrated loose ended up jamming the front wheel and throwing the rider ... not good!

And I know what you mean about putting the bike together myself. I used to buy old, used snowmobiles and put them back in service for resale. I saw lots of "good enough" repairs put on by previous owners who didn't care or didn't know better. Good to check every nut and bolt when we can!

Your Schwinn looks GREAT! I really like the "knotty pine saddle bags" too! I've been seriously considering the Schwinn Meridian trike from Wally World. Was thinking today of how I might build a nice, wood "truck bed" for the back to haul my dogs or a few groceries.
