Lost all the frame strength by removing the reinforcing bars and the seat post. Prolly not a Schwinn anywho, based on the head tube. Prolly a murray or worse, huffy.

Hope they had dental insurance.

Schwinn frames used a forged head tube that was arc-welded to the steal frame tubes back from the transition to make them stronger.

Other companies brazed their tubes to the head tube with butt joints.

All this vintage bike talk reminded me of a garage sale find a year or so ago. What do you think? Any ideas on how to proceed with chrome, parts etc?

Not a Schwinn like I originally thought it was at a distance, but still kinda cool.

So when driving where do you put your thumbs? Do you keep them on the outside of the steering wheel or on the inside. I am asking because I am trying to break the habit of hooking my thumbs on the inside of the wheel.

The reason is the thumbs can get injured even in a minor crash, and if the airbag goes off it will push your arms aside and the injure is worse.
Quote:
What I was told was for fast track driving thumbs should be hooked for maximum control...in theory, however for rallying you don't want them there for any kicks from the wheel.
Quote:
Taught to have hands at 9:00 and 3:00 at BMW driving school. I believe it was also suggested not to hook thumbs due to potential to have them broken if steering wheel air bag deploys. Pretty much do this around town but tend to one hand on undemanding drives.

Quote:
Learn to keep your thumbs OUT of the inside of the wheel. This is very important because hitting a curb, debris, or another vehicle, with the front tires will violently jerk the steering wheel. Broken thumbs are a common injury in off road and racing sports when thumbs are wrapped around a steering wheel.
A few years ago a Pelican forum poster broke one of his thumbs out at the track when he spun out, and posted about it.

I remember, because it changed the way I hold the steering wheel on my cars.

Sorry, I call BS. Look at all these rally drivers. Control is more important. Also, how do they suppose F1 drivers hold their steering "wheel" then?
