Schwinn Cruiser Project

I found this beauty last week at the local thrift shop — It was begging for a good home, and it could use some TLC. A great bike to have at the office for grabbing lunch, cruising around the ’169. Maybe a nice ride to Publix or library if someone is feeling adventurous.

This bike's a little rusty in some spots, but overall not in bad shape. I would guess this bike is from late ’70s/early ’80s.

The immediate needs:
• chain - 1/2 x 1/8 -
• tires - must be whitewalls - 26 x 2.125
• fresh tubes
• grips - may get some donor grips I have laying around, but these here would be swell:
