Thanks. I plan on putting the fenders back on when I get some lower profile tires that won't rub on the inside of the fenders and I may throw the rack back on or swap it to another bike.

I just can't make up my mind with what I want to do with this build! Haha. I think I'm finally set on the coaster brake cruiser bike idea though.

Almost a shame to convert this beauty. Just be sure to save all the bits to put it right again. And it is only a Schwinn-hardly endangered species.Enjoy.
