Frankenstine Schwinn

Okay so my Schwinn started life as a 1980 Schwinn anniversary edition, however I began customing it to look more like one of the 1940's to early 1950's Schwinns. I have a theory that Schwinn blood is Schwinn blood and mixed Schwinn and associates do not matter. It is coming together nice however I still have a laundry list for my mechanic and a long list of parts I will be ordering.

currently do not have a functional camera, and it might be a couple months before I can get a reliable one.
