    It's just like Cruiser's bike. 26 Schwin Jaguar. I moved my seat back a couple of inches. Otherwise my knees were hitting the handlebars....................

    I used a diamond stone set from harbor freight and use what will fit in the hole, wide open. work careful it will tear up things quick.

    I cut the seat post at a 45 degree angle and made a 90 degree bend and welded them together. Then I made another 45 degree cut and made another 90 degree bend and welded them together. Cool thing about round is you only have to cut one 45. Then you can turn it to make a 90.....................

    I worked as a welder and fabricator for a long time. I still like to do it but just for myself. I don't think I could take the physical strain of it anymore................:ride2:

    After we worked on my bike today I took it for a short spin. It was REALLY cold and windy so I didn't give it good test. But it sure seems to wind up better. It still won't wind like that evil black bike of Normans. But it made a difference for sure. I'm going to put a new plug wire on it the next chance I get and see what that'll do for it............................:ride2:
