    Personally, I'd aready have an engine in that beauty.....look at all the space that frame has too offer. It is a beauty in it stock condition, unless you collect them or get a paper route, you'ld better get to motorizing it laff You know me ;)

    That's a real nice bike, but not too rare or valuable... So go ahead & motorize it!!

    Also... OLD SCHWINNS RULE!! (^)

    Old Schwinn's are a dime a dozen, I see no reason not to do whatever to it. I have one waiting to get modifed as I see fit for an engine....right after I finish chopping up my late 30's/early 40's monark.

    It's a Corvette, and therefore demands a motor.

    I say drop an HT in it!

    Who cares if its worth anything anyways, the current person collecting it is you - and you should have fun with your collection.

    Heck - if I had a mint condition antique highwheel I'd have that thing motored by the end of the riding season.

    Why pedal, when you can ride? MOTORIZE IT.
