    Here is my new Build, it is a Schwinn Point Beach and it is for sale......
    I built the Schwinn as a side project because I am one of those people who would prefer to be in the garage tinkering than sitting in front of the t.v.

    If anyone local would like to check it out let me know. :grin:

    Here is my "Daily driver" it is a specialized fsr with the Gebe 32cc tanaka.
    I can't tell you enough how happy I am with this setup! I feel I can get on it anytime and ride it anywhere! So far I have 380 trouble free miles :grin:

    Looks good. But it may be wise with the strap being that low on the frame to put another one on the other side. That's what's normally done.

    I know, I know...... I have been planning on it ever since I had first assembled it but everything has been working so well I just never think about when I have the time, but I know it will cause future problems and I will get it done:smile:

    Ok, that's cool. Hate to see a great system take a dump because it was not installed properly.

    Nice bikes

    Rob, those are lovely bikes especially the Specialized. What model of Schwinn is that? It looks identical to my Alloy Seven but it's got different livery. Is it a Walmart bike?

    Wal-Mart catalogue only order with surprisingly nice components. Bought one myself last year.

    The Schwinn is a Point Beach, they carry them at my local Walmart.

    Very nice build!

    I was just at Wal-Mart this afternoon looking at the Point Beach. I went in to look at the Moon Dog and the Point Beach caught me eye. I think I'm going to have to cough up the extra $50 and go with the Point Beach.
