I'm looking for a Trashed Schwinn stingray or krate frame, THE WORSE THE CONDTION THE BETTER. I'm looking for a Bare frame but a compleate bike is ok too.
remember, the worse the condition the better! I have welding abilitys so if its cut in half or parts are missing that fine!

email me at weststreetbikes@hotmail.com or post here if you got something.

I recall that someone was looking for this item... It would be the correct shifter for an old Columbia Playbike, etc.

Hi all,

I am looking for some information on an old muscle bike made by Chiorda. It is in rough shape, wonder if I should restore or just modify and use for a cruiser. It is an old schwinn muscle bike look alike.

I've never heard of "Chiorda". Sounds Italian... but one never knows. A rare piece? Maybe. As to restoration, sure why not. If nothing else, give it a good top-to-bottom cleaning up and see if then it strikes your fancy.

I for one, think that any of the "Old Iron" is worth putting in a little effort. Even the off-brand look-a-likes of yesteryear were better constructed than the stuff you see at Wally World today.
