1954 Schwinn Corvette 26

This build is dedicated to my dad who got me my 1st bike from a graduating college kid as he was about to throw it in a dumpster back in 1970. I'm proud to say the bike was a 60's Schwinn StingRay

This beautiful yellow cruiser is a 1954 Schwinn Corvette frame with SE Racing seat and fork, BMX Guru rims and hubs, Duro tires, Porkchop crank, chainwheel, brake calipers, and MKS pedals with a KMC chain. The bars and stem are Black Ops. The brake levers are Dia-Compe. I used Schwinn Traveler decals because the multi colored design of the decals looked great against the yellow powder coat. It took a little bit more time to build this one but I love the way this bike turned out

Re: 1954 Schwinn Corvette 26

What size headset and bottom bracket does this use?

I have an old Schwinn Heavy Duti that I want to use to make a klunker and am curious before I start tearing it down and ordering parts.
