Posted by: Nancy TITLE: AGE / VALUE: 1950~s Schwinn DX J-40
Have had bike since ~71 and repainted a few times. Just recently discovered the model and year of the frame. It has the orig frame, rims, brakes, and gearing (skip tooth). When I recieved the bike it was set up like a stingray. Need opinion -- Do I ~refurbish, restore or ? and do I try to put it back to the ~original~ look or just fix it back up in the muscle bike look? I would need to find fenders, handle bar set up and seat for the 1950~s look.

Unless you~re comfortable with its musclebike look, it would be rather customary to restore it to OG status.
