1965 Schwinn

A work in progress, has been for a few years now.. All dressed up as an American, but it's really a Typhoon middleweight.

The only thing left from original is the frame. All the chrome bits are from a 1961 American.
Also have a '59 wasp and a torpedo frame and fork, it's a 60 something

Torpedo. I bought it sight unseen and I was a little disappointed that the kickstand had been cut off from the frame and the fender bracket between the chain stays had been modified.

Considering making a BMX out of it. I have a pitchfork and some 27.5 wheels that might look cool.
