1964 Schwinn Speedster 26

Found this '64 "Camelback" completely stock in NYC but just had to give it the custom cruiser treatment.  My first museum build off entry.  I kept it lean and classic with all chrome/polished components to offset the nice patina'd og black paint.  It has a short top tube at 21.5" which makes it feel more like a 24".  It rides smooth and fast! US made Bendix coaster hub and Schwinn seat clamp are original to the bike. Finding the 1964 stamped Brooks saddle was the cherry on top. Thanks for looking.
