Splendid Cycles Big Sale

Vintage customized Schwinn

Posted by on March 2nd, 2009 at 1:01 am

I had my vintage Schwinn customized bicycle stolen sometime between Mon Feb 24th and 6am Tues Feb 25 from the front of my apart bldg on SE 12th(they cut the thick link chain). I turned it into a pedicab of sorts, attaching a chair and foot-guard, and upholstering it myself. They may unbolt the rear part of the frame (which the chair is welded on) and try to sell it that way. Its the only material object important to me, and now its gone. If you see or hear anything about my beloved bike, I am offering a reward for information leading to its return and/or person who stole it.

I am devastated.

Thank you,

is there a picture of the bike?
what color is it? what size wheels?
more details you can give would definitely help.


Donna, there are several custom Schwinn’s on craigslist right now. I would look there regularly.
