1966 Schwinn Fastback

Note: Close up shots?

Old school flavor from way back in the prehistoric ages!

Coppertone frame and fork combo with a an OG Ashtabula gooseneck and some small ape hangers that later evovled into the box bars that came as standard equipment on so many bikes from the 70's! Chrome seatpost and quilted saddle along with some AJ style Arraya box rims with 105 gauge spokes which also became the the must have stuff when it all went down way back then. Some old Huntwilde grips and OG Schwinn knobbys. Also included is the OG sprocket and cranks with pedals.OG seat clamp and kept the kick stand for old times sakes!

Re: 1966 Schwinn Fastback

Man.  I've passed on Fastback frames at flea markets and swap meets.  Never occurred to me to build one up as an old school BMX.  Gotta keep my eyes open now...
