Thanks! Perfect timing. New pic of the yellow Varsity now with a nice double wall front aluminum wheel.

I'm now thinking of buying the same rim to relace to the rear and make it match...

I can't say mine is pristine by any stretch, but it's presentable for its 48 years.

Speaking of, I took the classy lady out on the town tonight. New tires and the handlebar has been replaced but...

Well, I didn't get a Continental, but I did get a chestnut brown Varsity today...

Seller pics. Needs tires and an adjustment but looks like it's going to be a nice rider....

I am keeping an eye out for one of these to show up locally. It's the polar opposite to my '88 Woodlands, being the halo model for the mountain bikes that year and my bike is the cheapie.

Man... I think I need a 1944 or older one now too. In nearby Reading, Pennsylvania every year is a World War II re-enactment. I'd definitely consider bringing one out to that.

Schwinns!

I find myself inundated in Schwinns. None particularly high end, nearly all of them more than 25 years old. All enjoyable for different reasons. Didn't set out to be this way, but I guess I've become...

I'm not sure I'd really call this a "conversion" as this is pretty much what a 1988 Schwinn Woodlands looked like right out of the catalog, just with a slighly different color to the paint and some...

Is it wrong to point out that BMXs are single speeds? I quite like this 24" Haro Downtown cruiser. I ride it more like a small beach cruiser than a BMX.

Freewheel, 27.

1973 Schwinn Varsity Singlespeed Conversion

Here's my '73 Varsity. It's always been a single speed in the time I've owned it (was pretty much a bare frame chained to a fence when I first saw it). I had regrettably let it rust up a bit from...

Nice bike.

Be careful, I'm out of space in my shed, my garage, my storage locker and have some hanging around in my place of employment...

I really need to start going N-1 instead N+1....

I have what I believe to be the same frame moldering away in my carport. I forgot it was there along with a couple other bikes that had somewhat major issues and were parked. Little to no rust on...
