1981 Schwinn Cruiser 5

This is my rider, cruiser, and favorite bike! A BIG Schwinn Cruiser 5 with 26" Teny Mags on it. This took a lot of time to complete, and I LOVE how this rides!

DJ/EFX built this for me and it was nothing like it is now.  After a year of riding it, we broke it down and sent the frame out for powder coating.  I got a pair of 26" Teny Alloy Mag rims with a 5speed cluster on the rear, so the cruiser gears were set.  Added a black Tough Neck &  Pad set, from DJ/EFX and then Ronny at S & S Anodizing did the brake calipers, handlebars, and seat post clamp all in blue.  This is the Bigger version of my 69 Stingray that I posted (black and blue rims) that i just got old skool cruiser bars for, and we are building a bike trailer to go behind this cruiser with a cooler and portable DJ rig to ride to the block party!  I need a front tube Schwinn badge if someone has one!
