  • Studebaker/Schwinn merger

    They are picking on us but at least the comments are fun. BTW I own a Schwinn Phantom '57 and a circa 1960 Hornet, so this caught my attention. Huck

    hey, I sure wouldn't mind finding a Schwinn Paramount. I doubt I will be able to find one on a CASO budget though! And the fact that I'm just a little taller than average so I ride a pretty popular frame size...

      Thats cool! I never really mentioned it before, but as a side thing to make a few extra bucks, I repaired and built my own custom bikes out of a tool shed and sold them. And you could have guessed what I called them: Studebaker. Unfortunately the farm where the shop was went under and is for sale, so my shops done. Only ever built 5 ground up custom Studes. All hand made tube frames welded toghether. Also had one prototype that was to be an up hill racer, it got scraped. All were either sold of just scrapped. I didnt want to scrap them, but short notice. Oh well! Neat story!
