Well, initially I planned on making a board tracker, and still intend to down the line. But due to a recent acquisition, I am building a Cruiser! I found this 1956 B.F. Goodrich Spitfire. Since the bike is a B.F Goodrich marketed Schwinn, and I live in Akron, Ohio, I have decided to name her the "Rubber City Flyer". Overall, the bike has solid frame with pretty good original paint for being 60 years old. I plan on cleaning her really good and touching up the paint, re-grease the crank bearings and headset bearings. The fenders need massaged or replaced. And, yes I will reinforce the brackets and braces also. Since it is a middle-weight frame, I intend to embrace her for what she is a middle-weight Schwinn! I am going to make my own beefed up S-7 wheel set with a Sturmey Archer Dynamo 90mm drum front hub, and Shimano cb-e110 coaster on the rear. I really wanted balloon tires, yet I want to keep the fenders and not have to mess with making them work. I found a pretty cool compromise... 26 x 2 x 1 3/4 Wide Profile S-7 tires made by Sunlite and maybe others. So, in my book, I get the best of both S-2 and S-7 rims! Think I will paint the rims Coach Green to match the bike. Here is the Pre-War Truss that I am going to use on this build. I just received an email stating that my Panther tank from Pat (Sportsman Flyer) has shipped. I plan on running a 2 stroke china girl, but haven't set on a vendor yet. Does anyone know of any info, color codes and such on color matching Schwinn paint, especially, Coach Green and Ivory? I have found on the interwebs some guys with very expensive rattle cans that claim to be a good match, but I would like an enamel automotive paint to shoot with an airbrush or brush on areas that need touch-up. More to come soon, I will start mocking her up as more parts arrive.
