Default Re: Dave's 1962 Schwinn Briggs Bike

Thanks Moto. No banana seat, something like a cobra shape. Probably straight about 5'' wide curving over the top of the rear tire, then flaring out wider and transitioning nicely into the tank. Connected to the slightly angled back sissy bar on the rear and anchored into a cut off seat post area. Haven't got that far yet. Will make some cardboard templates until we get what we want. I had to slot the left hand gusset to make room for the brake arm clamp, and I thought it looked cool and just finished with that pattern.

Dave's coming over on Saturday After Donut Derelicts (rain or shine but not on 2 wheels). Going to make some major decisions about styling.

Dave didn't make it Saturday but now that the rain is over for a while, I finally got a chance to fit the belts. They look good so now I can make the rear axle adjusters and fit a front pedal sprocket and chain.

Hi Curt, it's 3/16'' thick. My choices were 3/16'' or 1/4''. The thick had to ordered so I went with the lighter. I'm glad I did as it seems the perfect size.
