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!!

looks good, I was wondering about the loop-tail hybrid, I've seen some awful ones but this one looks good! :)


A bicycle is like a toothbrush; you should have one and use it often.

Great looking bike! If I may ask what kind of bars are those?
