other projects - Schwinn American

Latest one I've found is an old 1950s-1960s Schwinn with a 2-speed Bendix rear hub and rear coaster brake. It is an "American" model and only needs new tires and tubes plus a cable for the rear hub. Of course, it is well-worn and has "patina" with a slight layer of rust, but I may keep it that way instead of completely restoring it... like a "rat bike".

Mostly complete, I believe the only thing it lacks are fenders.
