For the past two months or so, the Gallery has been on a vacation of sorts. Our Theme Weeks took us on a wild ride from continent to continent, but like most overdone vacations, we’ve come home to find a refrigerator full of rotting cabbage. The refrigerator in this case is my inbox, and the rotting cabbage is the pile of Schwinns that have collecting since late March. I’m going to spend the next week or so “cleaning out some cabbage”. Please enjoy.
Warning: The following post is “Not What God Intended”
Greg T. sent in this, his 1971 Schwinn Varsity, way back in mid March. For one reason or another, I continually put off posting it. The OTSG does not, in any way, endorse this kind of brutal maiming of a perfectly fine OTS, but please enjoy the “Before” shot.
I added some blacked out wheels with bigger tires, switched out the crank and sprocket, and added a new seat and set of bars. The orange paint really pops after a good clean and wax. I understand if you don’t want to include this in you gallery, since technically it is only a single speed now, but it is what it is…
