This is my 71' Schwinn Suburban conversion fixed with custom Ice Cream Paint job Ha! Very Happy This is going to be my commuter. I got frame for $20 on CL. I strip it down & gave it a Swiss army bicycle theme. I use Rustolem Primer on everything. The chain guard/fenders painted with Rustolem Black and frame/fork is painted with Krylon Hosta Leaf. Then I sprayed everything with clear glitter paint to give it a metallic look and Rustolem clear coat.

It has the original Schwinn parts : spring leather saddle, seatpost,
headset, stem, BB, crankset, grips, fenders and chain guard.
I took off the stock hanlebar and put Wald mustache handlebar
Flip/flop wheelset
700c/35 tires
Rear rack with new Custom made Leather Pannier bag
Vintage leather tool bag
Bell ringer "ring a ding ding dong" lol!

I'm waiting on my chrome bullet head light, rear rack light & fender reflector. I'll post a update photo when the lights comes in.
