beach cruisers = snow cruisers in our part of the country. Been thinking about getting a wide tire bomb from bd. Might be a cool ride,
So I haven't done much riding other than to and from work, however I did come across another ride to add to my collection:
It's missing the correct front rack, and I will probably remove the baskets in the future, but for now it's a lot of fun. It's listed as a middle weight, but I will bet it tips the scales at near to 60 pounds!
Nice bikes! Lots of potential in this one.
1988 Peugeot PY-10/P Frankenbike, 1994 Diamondback "Response Elite" MTB, 2002 Performance M201 MTB and a 1983 SR road bike that has become my favorite ride. At least for now.
What is the correct front rack????? I don't think it came with a rack front or back?????
Thanks shop4man, I haven't decided what I want to do yet with that bike other than put some bars and a seat on it, and ride! Our weather has been warmer this week, and my morning commute has been much more enjoyable.
Every Schwinn Corvette I have researched has had that style rack if it had been restored. This was also confirmed by the old timers at the local Schwinn store that the Corvettes came with that front rack from the mid 1950's to the late 1960's.
Now that I see it I remember the rack style, I didn't recognize the corvette, I just remembered them plain in front?? good info,,,,,,,,,
Bicyclridr4life: Yes I was making pedal tracks later on. It was not fun. I wiped out three times going down a hill because of pedal tracks and extreme slickness. Bleah.
StephenH, I am not too concerned yet whatexactly it is yet, maybe after this spring I will post it and see. Thanks for the tip though. I agree that it looks similar to a worksman, I would like one eventually. Just wish they were a little cheaper.
This was my Monday morning. 4:30 am, -2.2 degrees with a -20 wind chill. Brrrr..... I tried several times to take a clear shot of our downtown all lit up, but this was the best I could get. Sorry.
I will try for a better one later on. Perhaps it was too cold for my phone to work right!
