I posted my shifter question in the general area of MTBR, and one of the replies was someone selling a '79 Schwinn Speedster. It's probably gone to the second page by now, so you'll have to find it. I thought you might be interested, since you've been looking at original Schwinns.

I'm looking for an older cruiser (preferably a Schwinn to use in a MTB conversion project). I like old MTBs and have a 1/2 baked idea to built up an old klunker off-rode bike using late 70s early 80s parts and an old cruiser frame - just like it was 1978.

So although I'm looking for a frame, it's nto with the restoration idea in mind.

Here's a couple of pics of older MTBs that I have:

Great bikes!

I have a friend who has an old Mongoose rigid with Suntour drivetrain and cantis, I'll have to see if he wants to sell it, it's too big for him. Thanks for reminding me :)
