1997 Schwinn Super Stock 2
Always loved Brian Foster's style, and always wanted a long, low and lean Blue Falcon, but finding a '97 Falcon is tough, and big bucks (the 97's with chromed downtube decals are the only ones for me.) So when this neglected, complete SS2 showed up, I had to have it. The front triangle of this bike shows some bad sunlight paint fade, whereas the back end is pristine. Swapped out the parts I thought deserved to be more badass for the tribute, and kept it period accurate.
