Finished a 1987 LeTour that is now on CL, it was too small but a good deal so I got it expecting to move it on. I would love to find another Tenax Framed Schwinn in my size one of these days. I didn't go full tilt with the refurb but all the important stuff got done, redid all the bearings, new chain and cassette, set up in Indexed mode, added a rear brake as it came to me without one and new pads, cables and housing. Left the tires and bar wrap as found since they were in decent shape.
