Customized 1960s Schwinn Corvette

That's what I'm riding these days because it's too hot to go any faster than cruising.

I added a spring fork to absorb front shocks, and for looks.

It has a spring gel seat for full comfort. Riding this bike feels like riding on a cloud... I found this little Syracuse bicycle license plate on another bike I bought at a garage sale.

Those Schwalbe Fat Franks tires are awesome. They make the wheels substantially bigger, and contribute to the smoothness of the ride.

1973 10 speed Schwinn Continental: 40 years old!

Remember this?

I took it all apart, cleaned it, derusted the chromes, repaired the brakes, greased it, and rebuilt it. I found white tires online and an old seat and post from another bike.

Now lives in Brooklyn with Teddy...
