Total restoration of Family Heirloom bike belonging to a relative of customer. ¬†This was a 100% ground up restoration on a 1954 Schwinn Streamliner bicycle that was in Barn Found shape and too rough to show or display as found. ¬†Bike was restored in the original Blue Opalescent color over Ivory, correct Bottle Cap Schwinn pedals were found, along with correct saddle, NOS grips and missing Delta Rocket Ray light. ¬†Parts used were all original period correct Schwinn parts aside from the Schwinn Anniversary 95′ Typhoon Tires which represent very well and were adequate replacements to the original factory rubber. ¬†A practically “No Expense Spared” restoration on a Mid-range “D” model bicycle that just goes to show that even those lesser catalog models than Phantom, Panther, and “B” model lines, really made a¬†statement of 50’s class during Schwinns pinnacle in the mid 1950’s and the ushering out of the Balloon tire bicycle era for Schwinn.
