Schwinn 1955 Cycletruck
This is how this all began!
This is a long way from that spray bombed yellow bike it once was! Before I went to work I found and mapped out where the gold pinstripes went. So all the black paint went back where it was supposed to go and so did the gold pinstripes!
All the decals came from Memory Lane. Really a nice finishing touch!
So I'm not a Bob Usasi! But I did recover the Mesinger with leather, no stamp though. I wish I hadn't forgotten to take the tabs to the plater with the rest of the stuff!!
One part I still haven't found is the S1 basket. I have an S2 basket I could reproduce, but I just haven't found the time.
Here is a detail of the rear fender pinstripe.
You can't beat that decal on the downtube!!
Here is where the operater does his work! A lot of nice shiny bright work!!
Here is the front fender pinstripe detail.
That bright glowing thing is actually the headbadge!!
