1966 Schwinn Klunker

This is a 24" wheel 1966 Schwinn that was converted for mountain bike use.  The braze-ons and derailleur hanger were added to an original frame.  Most of the parts appear to be late 1970's vintage but I am not sure where the fork came from (appears to be more early 1980's?).  The paint is pretty unique, red on one side and pink on the other.
