Vintage Flea Finds

She's all mine. Mom and I were rounding a corner at the monthly Colliseum flea market and my eye caught this old vintage beauty, a Schwinn classic cruiser bicycle. She's a little rough in places but for 40 bucks and a vision I wheeled her off to my truck. Husband and I now have a project we can work on together and we are fortunate to have access to some guys who are really good with rebuilding, metalwork and paint. She's going to be a blacked out/pin stripped version just like my other motorized cruiser.

I must confess this is my 6th Samsonite suitcase. How could I pass up a $5 bargain? I don't have this size and the inside lining is in pristine condition. I just couldn't pass it up. I'll recover it in my usual cowgirl fashion.
