Tiffany's Rebuilt Schwinn

Nice display for the July 4th.

I just finished fitting Tiffany to the bike and off we go.

Over the winter I tore down Tiffany's bike to the frame and overhauled it. I spread the frame to get a 9 speed cassette to fit where a 6 speed used to be and replaced the fork so she could use a quick release front hub. I also painted the frame and installed new decals too. The old double crank was replaced with a new triple and new front and rear derailleurs. A new headset, brakes, shifters,seat and a brand new set of wheels that I built up myself, were also installed. She now has a bike with all updated components and ready for lots of miles.
