    The thing about these old Schwinns, at least in my experience, is that they get more positive attention and start more conversations than any new bike I've seen lately. Maybe we should steal the old Honda slogan and change it to, "You meet the nicest people on a Schwinn."

    Nice fine. They are getting popular again. Use to own one. Never again. It was way too heavy. I am a carbon fiber guy now when I want to go fast. Vintage cyclist when I want to cruise around time looking extremely cool.

    Varisty s are fast one thing I get all time is some knuckle head trying to race me most of the time I smoke them but it depends how I feal
    At 65 there days I am not fast
    But the varsity will run the fastest I had it was 28 mph on flat land with fenders rear rack tool bag full of tools battery's for lights so I made it heavy but like I said at 65 I could only do it for a block and a haft had A aluminum bike before this and the frame kept breaking and it really was not that light
