1981 Schwinn Cruiser 5 26

This is my rider, cruiser, and favorite bike!  A BIG Schwinn Cruiser 5 with 26" Teny Mags on it.  This took a lot of time to complete, and I LOVE how this rides!

DJ/EFX built this for me and it was nothing like it is now.  After a year of riding it, we broke it down and sent the frame out for powder coating.  I got a pair of 26" Teny Alloy Mag rims with a 5speed cluster on the rear, so the cruiser gears were set.  Added a black Tough Neck &  Pad set, from DJ/EFX and then Ronny at S & S Anodizing did the brake calipers, handlebars, and seat post clamp all in blue.  This is the Bigger version of my 69 Stingray that I posted (black and blue rims) that i just got old skool cruiser bars for, and we are building a bike trailer to go behind this cruiser with a cooler and portable DJ rig to ride to the block party!  I need a front tube Schwinn badge if someone has one!

The 70's... We had no knee pads, no over protective soccer moms, no mini vans, if you messed up it was actually your own fault, and we rocked out to 8 tracks, cassettes and vinyl.  THAT'S HOW WE ROLLED!
