Rachel's Schwinn Townie

So Rachel had this Schwinn that we got a thrift store in Sacramento. She rode it a lot in Portland, and when I wanted a new bike project, I dove into making this ugly 1991 Schwinn something pretty cool.

I showed Rachel a picture of a townie bike that I thought she might like:


But that bike costs $1200. I took the Schwinn she had and added $200 worth of parts/materials to make this. Fun project.

In the end, I kept the Headset, BB, RD, frame, fork and wheels. I had the Schwinn decals custom made by Also, ground off the teeth on the large ring so that it would act as a guard.

Bianchi Brava

Thought, I'd post the pics of my Bianchi Brava I sold awhile back. She was pretty.
