    I ordered another Schwinn Swindler 275. My last one rode awesome. The 44 tooth sprocket and the 27.5 inch tires combo will out run most 26" bikes without effort.

    Back together, fixed the wrong way piston and broken kill switch wires.


    Working on the throttle


    Mounted engine (good enough for the girls that I go out with)

    Finally took this beauty out for the first start and test ride. She took a minute to fire but ran pretty good, no hiccups.

    What a problem child. I ended up shearing off the front engine mount bolt and snapped off the other taking it apart. Why did I use the supplied bolts again? I successfully drilled and extracted one bolt just fine. The other required a Helix-coil. Then the jet found so debris. I cleaned it out but ended up replacing it with a SHA. Had a spark plug problem too. I tried a NGK PB6HS spark plug for my but the piston keep closing the gap. Squeezing a set of 29's on it was a dumb idea, they fit tho. Then the rear (bike chain) sprocket clip keep popping off, weird. I used a thicker sprocket and new clip, a-o-k, now. Pulled the clutch, fired the beast, dropped the choke and zoom, zoom, clunk, clunk. Opps, forgot to tighten the chain tensioner.

    Finally, back on the road again. I have video proof.

    Sounds like it was running just fine. Looks like your brakes were giving you a problem, forcing you to run the stop signs! Like you I would also have to drive in circles to find my home again as all the homes look so much alike. Whats the deal with all your neighbors putting those big roll around MAB traps in front of their homes trying to force you out into the traffic to get you run over. How rude is that?

    Think I finally worked out the bugs. Latest photos, hard to tell it's a swindler.

    You must really trust that kickstand! Looks clean, would love to get a shot of you riding it to get a feel of the riding position.
