Hello all!! Wow where do I begin?? Well first of all just wanted to share my build with ya,, Its a 1939 BF Goodrich Streamline. In the process of collecting parts and doin research..
Been out of the scene for awhile and wanted to get back to my roots!!
I grew up in Marin and used to ride Tam back in the early to mid 80's! (San Marin High class of 86) A buddy of mine and I used to have a cantilever Schwinn all built up with full braze ons and everything. We shared that bike but had our own rides as well.
I lived in Novato and we used to hang out at a hole in the wall bike shop called Cross Four Bikes. I forget the guys name but he had a Charlie Cunningham. He did all the work on our Schwinn along with some other folks I never met.... Hmmm!! Lots of work went into that frame! Sadly it got stolen in SF.
My sister still lives in San Anselmo so when I am done with this thing (it will never be "done") I am gonna have to go for a visit and test it out!! :thumbsup:





Hey if Schwinn can put whatever badge they want on their bikes,, so can I !!!

Uh, can we get photos of your split screen type II please?
Too late Sky you missed the video of it. It is a nice one, very clean. The owner may be a future darwin award winner though.:D

straightbarjay, you should email Alan Bonds. He did a bike with white industries cranks and has it posted on the clunkers site so he may be able to help with the spindle length. I am running TA's on mine and I used a Phil Wood bottom bracket that just happened to be the right length but I never measured it. I wish mine had the same fork as yours.

To be honest I actually dig the van, I always wanted one of the Eurovan ones in AWD... Very practical.
The VW Bus/Van uses the driver's legs to absorb the impact of a frontal collision.;) Still, very cool.

From one old, VW-driving Novato boy to another...SWEETNESS! That's going to be one nice Klunker. Speaking of VWs, when I was going to NHS I was driving a '64 Notchback. Great car. Wish I still had it. This year will be the 35th Anni of the 1st Repack race. Perhaps an old iron Klunker convention is in order?
