1961 Girls 24" Schwinn Flying Star!
Sandblasted and restored - I managed to keep all the original stencilling on the tanks and chain guard. Matched the Spitfire blue and white.
I redid the pinstriping and kept the original 'sales' sticker. I also kept some of the original wear... and recoloured the seat.
I located an era-correct 'Delta' headlight. It needed some major attention but it totally completes the bike. It was white - looked okay - but the blue is the better choice. All works.
Great looking and a smooth ride -
(oh - and the advertisement was actually out of a 'daffy duck' comic.. And no, $44 will not get you this bike..)
