1956 Schwinn Santa Barbara 26
26" cal custom bmx cruiser/strandie -- Business in the front....party in the back!
My first full build...this is a 1956 Schwinn straight bar that I had Rex with Santa Barbara Cruisers modify. He cut off the back end and welded on one of his custom frame chromo back ends. Loop tail and horizontal drop outs included. The Schwinn-Graft...or the SchRex...call it what you will but Rex did an amazing job with the frame and the result is awesome!!
