One of our new customers, Ann, gave us the opportunity to restore her Schwinn Hornet from the 1950s. It was passed down to Ann from her Mom, who originally owned the bike at age 12. This bike is amazing and as classic as it gets! New wheels, some classic white wall tires, a serious drive-train clean, and the Hornet is set for cruising again. This was truly a pleasure to work on. Hope you enjoy the photos!
As usual, Verde has created some of the cleanest and most solid designs for their 2011 line of bikes. Whether you ride BMX or not, the aesthetics and design are beautiful to look at. Man are we excited about these! All bikes now feature a 25-9 gear ratio & sealed mid bottom bracket. The Cadet model has also been introduced for the little guys getting into BMX at a very affordable price. We should be seeing our first shipment of these in the shop in July, so be sure to swing by and check them out for yourself.
