New project any pointers?
This is going to be my first klunker and I have a few different ideas to build it up.
Base frame 57? Schwinn Hornet?
I have a couple different forks I'm considering though right now I am leaning towards using a retro ryder headset and running a fat bike fork and 4" tire in the front. I'm not sure if I should repaint this or leave the patina. As for the rest of the build it's a toss up, I change my mind on how I want to build it up fairly often. One thing I need to have it done before the end of May since I'll be racing an easier super course on it.
So do I repaint it and how should I build it up?
Some of my other project cruisers:
Older Ross I repainted and used decals left over from when my grandfather had a john deere dealership, also yes that is a car horn on the stem...
and my newer madwagon cruiser with magura hydraulic rim brakes, syncros stem, bullseye hubs laced to salsa gordo rims, and not pictured a kooka razor crank.
