Here's my new personal bike... It's a 1959 Schwinn rat rod.
Everything you see (frame, fork & rims) are powder coated (not painted) It even has real pinstriping!


Eat your hearts out... :crash: :D

I just taped up the spokes, and primed one rim. I was going to go with grey but that red does look pretty good!! Those bars are INSANE. Hey can I use a photo of that on My website for Your listing ?

WOW... That's resurrecting a old skool thread!!

The tires are both 26X2.125s; I chose them because of the 'skinny & fat' white walls like old skool hot rods have. ;)

Couldn't ya afford to get anything newer than a 1959? (Kidding of corse) That bike is BBBBBBAAADDDD to the bone! Very nice ride! Then again pretty much anything I've seen you build is pretty awesome...I would expect nothing less.
