1995 Schwinn XS 2

Brian Foster Super Stock 1 replica

So a friend of mine asked me to do a build for him. He wanted an XS like he had back in the day, but always wished it were a Brian Foster or a Blue Falcon. He bought this off of Ebay as a complete bike, all the way from Seattle. It was a bit rusty and in need of some polishing, and some of the parts were either junk, or unwanted. So we chased down the parts we needed and this is the finished result. Here's the build list:
