Excelsior, Huuzahhhh!!!!!

I'm this close (holds fingers close together in suggesting closeness) to owning a complete Schwinn Excelsior , my dreams are becoming true. HOOHOOHOO, that's my christmas for myself in june noise. HOHOHO is reserved and copyrighted from end of Thanksgiving til December 25th. I'm so excited and I just took up air brushing, so I can put my artistic skill to paint, and make my excelsior amazing.


Assuming I win the auction...

my ultimate plan is to slowly but surely build it, like restoring a vintage car, wait and find the right parts and such, either that or make my version of a modernized clunker. But I'm leaning towards vintage MTB parts and scouring for them, get it just right. Nahh what I mean

9 hours left, maybe I should bid....

Just kidding, don't have any money Good luck though! That's what my grandpa did with a 1930's Schwinn Phantom. It was the bike he rode as a kid, but got rid of it. Then when he was older found, one has spent the last probably 10 years restoring down to the very T. It looks amazing and sits in his living room

i just want to put the right vintage parts on it and ride it to see how nice we have it now, and to get a feel for how it used to be, makes a nice conversation piece and it's just cool
