I just picked up this 1976 Schwinn varsity for $20. The guy selling it was real cool and had a bunch of vintage bikes from the 50s and 60s.
i got this one
'86 panasonic team america columbus sl tubing 56 cm.
and ive been amassing parts for it over the past few months, going with 6 speed dura ace 7400-01 parts for the whole schmear.
so far ive snagged:
derraileurs and down tube shifters, brakes, 7401 aero levers, DA seatpost, crankset, chain, cassette, and hubs.
looking for a yellow selle turbo saddle for it, also on the fence about whether i should use my new looks or if i should find some old DA 7400 pedals.
82(?) fuji del rey 54 cm nothing really special- val-ite tubing, 5 speed freewheel, suntour ARX group, original gum hoods. lol.
its got nice feel to it even though the rear wheel is f*ked. i rode my first organized century on this one. also did a metric in 3 hours (something i haven't been able to do since) with this between my legs.
i love 80s bikes, great thread!
i know for a fact there are those pedals on ebay cos i was checking them out myself. do it. they are dope.
