Schwinn Remake




Yesterday, the Psycyclist, feeling a little jealous of all the attention that Agatha has been getting lately, wanted me to take some photos of his Schwinn turned Gios. This has proven to be a versatile bike for him. It was a Schwinn Madison frame that he resprayed. Then was a fixed gear now its a flip-flop. (a fixed/single speed).

He bartered some labor for the frame and wheels. He had a seat post and the saddle. We had the freewheel, brakes, levers and handlebars put on so we think the cost was somewhere around $70. He's been riding it now for about ten years.
