Re: Inauspicious Beginnings: 1961 Schwinn American.
Thanks SB I'll certainly need all the luck I can get, lol. Still have some tuning to do on the "Tanglebones" project before the wife will let me dig in to this in ernest. Or at least put money out...for that reason I'll likely just heat it more as I was planning, just have to get a better torch and this bike to meet in person.
We'll see how things go...
