Women’s Beach Cruiser & Schwinn Speedster – Life’s a Beach

His and Hers Venice Beach Cruisers

The 1981 women’s beach cruiser belongs to Minerva Vargas. The bike has an NOS springer front fork, full fenders, rear bike rack, crash guards on the rear seat, and NOS green flake handlebar grips. “The green NOS grips that I was able to buy dictated the color scheme of the bike,” explained Saul Vargas. Felix Designs in Las Vegas, Nevada, used an Axalta green flake to paint the bike. He also used two greens to pinstripe the bike’s rack, chain guard, fenders, and frame.

Saul Vargas owns the 1959 Schwinn Speedster. Saul added some hard-to-find parts such as a Schwinn Speedometer, a headlight with NOS light bracket, along with a pre-World War II gooseneck. The frame was powdercoated black, while the full fenders received Axalta black and gray graphics and red pinstriping. Chrome for both bikes was done by Speedy’s Chrome of Long Beach, California.
