Finally riding a big boys bike
Hi Cabers, I know I posted this bike awhile ago, but I wanted to post some updated photos of the bike. It came to me with a dealer installed black Schwinn mattress saddle, at the original owners request. I wanted a red Brooks B17 saddle for it, but I couldn't find any available. I was on the Cabe and spotted one in a picture that was posted by manuelvilla. I contacted him and he said we could work something out. We did, and I received the saddle, with extra items thrown in, in 24 hours! Again, I want to thank Manuel for helping me get this bike to where I envisioned it. It's like Brooks almost made this saddle for this bike. Please enjoy the pictures.

Hi everyone, Thank you for the nice comments. The bag support was made and distributed by Park Tools in the '70's. I've seen different sizes for different frames, as well as black coating on the ends. Of course, the red ends were a no brainer on this one!

HA! That's fine, as long as they let you take your bikes with you. They could be ridden up and down the halls.

Cleanest Sports Tourer I have ever seen, red Brooks really makes this ride pop. I have had a clean blue 73 Sports Tourer, it was a daily rider, not this clean though.
