the other day was walking back from lunch and ran into this beauty.
the owner was just leaving the post office, so i got to talk to him a little bit about his bike. they compliment each other very well, don't they?
he told me it is a 1951 schwinn that he spent years restoring. looks like a lot of love and labor went into that bike, because she's a beauty!
she has 95% original parts. including this 1930s-1950s era spring suspension.
look at the detail on those handlebar grips!!
a generation later, in the 1970s, this 1972 schwinn was born.
not sure if original pedals, but they really do look cute and probably are same era.
she's new to my east bay homegirl. now it's time for us to go on some rides! congrats on finding the cute bike! basket and back rack: cargo bike.
