This was during our ride yesterday.  I had previously changed out the front sprocket from a 43t to a 46t.  It is blasting my legs and I love it.

1941 Ladies Schwinn. Terrible repaint allows guilt free resto-mod for the wife. Modern 3 speed Sturmey drum brake hubs laced to Rhinolite xl's along with vintage Ashtabula cranks and '70's moto bars is the plan. This one will be slow going.

Re: Lets see those SCHWINNS...Bikes/parts/ect

I was lucky enough to come across an nos Edco headset for a standard head tube
These headsets were Team issue for Schwinn Factory riders. I have only seen them for the Sting which has a slightly smaller diameter head tube. Pretty stoked on this little gem, naturally I had to put it on the 79 big_smile

Nice touch! Is there any other part(s) you could get for this bike that would make it more factory correct and authentic?
