[quote]It time to downsize, so up for sale is my custom beer tap shifter bike. This bicycle is one of a kind rat rod ballon tire inspired comfort bicycle. It has been ridden extensively (meaning it rides well) and is built by a bicycle industry professional (I have worked the bicycle industry for the last decade and do amateur fabrication on my own).
1976 Schwinn Suburban (Chicago made)
Widened frame and fork to accept 26x3" tires
Altered to be a true cantilever suspension frame
Welded on disc brake mounts
Heavy patina finish (rust, age, paint)
Custom tall backswept bars using Schwinn original bars
Hand built wheels using brushed aluminum rims, rear wheel is sealed bearing 10speed compatible mtb hub
1x9 speed xtr cassette and xtr derailleur shifted by custom built beer tap suicide shifter (beer tap pulls cables that run around pulleys to shift a shifter mounted on the seat tube.
Handlebar mounted front rack
Decorative motorcycle headlight
Ding dong bell from 1970s (sounds better than modern ones)
Please note that everything on this bicycle was sourced used, but functions as it is put together. The bicycle is safe to ride and functions well, however it is not a bicycle meant for effortless cruising. It is a rat rod, meaning it is purposefully rusty and patina-ed.
