My buddy tours a Varsity ( insert an h after the s ) all over all year long. In Wisconsin! He just took it ice fishing. We call it the deterdant cuz it is set up as a junker so know one would want to steal it. Will try to get a picture soon.
The first Schwinn Le Tour was built in 1974. Here is mine I bought from the original owner. I put about 2,500 miles on it before I bought a modern road bike. Now I only ride it in parades and Gateway Coasters events. It's a beautiful riding bike. I just got tired of the constant maintenance.
