Hello bike people
« on: April 13, 2017, 03:57:53 PM »
Hello, my name is Roger and I live in New Brunswick Canada. I have restored a few bikes but, I have recently purchased a 1957 Schwinn Deluxe Hornet from the original owner. Since this is just an intro post, please see my post called 1957 Deluxe Hornet to get the full story on this bike as well as some pictures. I also ask for your expertise on how I should proceed with this beautiful machine. Thanks.

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you have a great project going. I love the part about the rack being a bit bent because his future wife rode on it when they were in 7th grade. So cool.  8)
