After all of these many months, it is done!
I wish that I could take credit for this, but the truth is that I simply sat down with a pen and pad and contemplated some things that I have always wanted to try on a hand fillet brazed Chicago Schwinn, because to me these frames deserve some special treatment. I wanted simplistic elegance and speed. This project came together because of some of the wonderful members we have on Bike Forums.
Thanks to Dr D for yet another absolutely perfect FAR OUT Campus Green paint job and for arranging for the decals!
(I don't want to start any arguments, mswantak did the decals and they are perfect. I don't know what the status is with that whole situation)
Thanks to the Big Boss Man for trading me the vintage alloy wheels for that mixte (which I was able to swap out for these Campagnolo wheels and hubs)
And, thanks to Jon at Grinder Bikes (I forget his user name) for feeding my Schwinn lust and creating yet another phenomenal build. It rides like velvet
Pastor Bob, this bike originally came from San Francisco Cyclery.
