Forum for restorations (Schwinn)?

I'm starting some restoration projects on a couple 1960's Schwinns. Is this a good place to ask questions about that topic or are there better forums elsewhere?

Take a look around, plenty of Schwinn threads.

No, we're just another inferior bunch.

Schwinn? No. They're not sufficiently English or Italian enough. Bolt on some exotic drilled parts and we -might- talk to you.

Ask away and remember: We like pictures.

Good as any. Try to post a few pictures of what you are doing.

Many here have, and have restored, old Schwinns

Schwinn also has their own forums where collectors hang out:

http://www.schwinnbikes.com/schwinn-life/forums/

Then there is also the unofficial Schwinn forum, arguable better than the official:
