Default Schwinn Cruiser

Was going to get a schwinn from ebay but the seller said that it was a women's cruiser and he had the men's picture up--not cool. So I immediately looked for another one and found this great schwinn drifter. I could only find it from sears, there was only one in stock in maryland (where I live), and one left online! I ordered the last one without hesitation and can't wait to put the engine on.

Here is the bike:

I'll post a picture when I put the engine on, it will be nothing special completely stock because its my first build, but I plan on making a 12 volt lighting system with turn signals--which if it works out I'll post as well.

Hey ellsworth,

You might have to bend the brake arm and open the center of the sprocket or mod the dust cover.
