    I started with this hand me down. Cool as hell now but then not so much.

    Got that stolen, had to ride this. Well like this but in bad shape and the bars turned up old man style

    Then was able to get a Super Goose with Z Rims, from a "friend". Like this but with yellow rims.

    Then a few throw aways. And this is still my bike.

    I had one like this, I turned the handle bars up and used to ride around doing wheelies on it all over the place.

    Total stoner.

    That bike was really bad ass, turned up bars was not my style though. I did ride no brakes.

    Schwinn used to be the best bikes hands down in the old days.

    I got my Daughter a cheap beach cruiser Schwinn a couple of years ago, they are total piles of shit now.

    Richmond CA style circa 1977-80 give or take. My mind is not what it used to be.

    Use the old Flintstone brake, foot on the ground or foot jamming against the forks. Works every time.

    For sure bro, made you feel like you were driving a race car. I ended up getting hit by a car, my blood stain was there for over 5 years. Good times

    I'm not sure of the exact model but it like nearly identical to the one in the pic of this thread. It's been rattle-canned a few times.
