    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:

    The above comment is entirely my delusional ramblings, and not those of my family, friends, past and future employers, the Academy of Motion Pictures, or any of my other personalities.
