Cool. The frame actually looks like it has been stretched a bit. There is a company that makes fiberglass bicycle "tanks" for converting the ladies bikes.

Very cool!

I'm currently doing the same thing to a 50s Schwinn girls cruiser. Girls bikes are being almost given away, I don't see why more people don't give them a sex change.

This is an interesting idea. Speaking of, I have picked up a 1960's Schwinn Hollywood women's cruiser, and I was thinking of doing something similar to that bike. As far as the top tube, did you use a tube from another bike, or did you buy tubing? as far as shaping, my cousin has a tubing bender, so that won't be an issue. I also have a 1968 sears 3 speed touring I was thinking of doing the same to.

Schwinn Hollywood, stronger frame. If it were mine take the top tube and cut the bottom tube, fit the top tube in with a few inches added, would be close to Indian style board tracker, with new top tube...........Curt

Jim Henderson, trading as The Renaissance Man, exported one of his grp TRM tanks to me in the UK. I used it to transform a girl's vintage Hawthorne step-thru into my DECOLINER.
Jim is a true craftsman and his work is top notch. His one-off bikes regularly come out on top in the Rat Rod Bikes Build-Off competitions.
