New to the forum

New from Texas,

I'm about to retire and have been refurbishing my 20 year old Schwinn Supreme Cruiser. I was going to post some pics but see I need to have at least 10 post first. Anyway just wanted to say howdy.

Welcome. Looking forward to seeing those pics. I’ve always been partial to Schwinns.

Congrats, looking forward to my retirement. Never really stopped biking, decided to refurbish vs buying new since I know how this bike feels/rides!

I decided to refurbish my 1990's Schwinn Beach Cruiser vs buy new. I know how this one feels and rides so it made since! Everything is new except the frame, rims and derailleur. I cleaned "everything" and put some mid-rise (9") handlebars, mini chrome fenders and an old Wheaties Cereal mini license plate TX 1954 (year I was born) on it to trick it out a little!



And some mini fenders.


Put an old Wheaties Cereal mini license plate on it.

Great pics!
It's nice that you still have the bike. I've kept my 94 Crosscut since new, but some of our other "nostalgia bikes" we've had to find again.

Welcome to retirement. I also retired recently and have purchased three bikes in the last 17 months. Two new ones and a 1980 Schwinn Voyager. I will have to sell one of my cars to make room in my garage.
