How many Schwinn Varsities does one person need? Bought this '71 for parts.

Got some chain tools. The chain checker has already knocked one of my Varsities temporarily out of service .

My wife got this freebie at a yard sale. It's a pre- Tupperware, glass food storage container.

I was feeling like I needed some more projects so I went on a little road trip into beautiful northern Maine to snatch this 1971 BMW R60/5 Motorcycle. Its truly barn fresh having been sitting for the past decade. It ran when parked though so we'll see if anything broke from just sitting around.

Prob the best set of Thiem wire toe clips that I’ve found

19680bb6d0e9bd8e8fdbbe618fb1ac72.jpg


Prob my best find is this teens accessory wheel to match the stem I picked up at ML a couple years ago. Looked at maybe 1,000 steering wheels but worth it.

Last I’ll take up your time with, killer early Americana piece-
Upstate NY thoroughbred racing hand-painted sign. Signed my Frank Zuber who went on to be a Norwich mayor and an oil magnate, also signed by MA Quinn who remained a reputable horse race secretary for many years.

On Thursday I stopped at an auction a few miles from work to see this TOC Ben Hur Rival badged bike. No wheels but still had the block chain. Judging by the lack of responses to the post in the pre-33 section about this bike, I probably did the best thing by passing on it. I dropped out at $50 and it sold to the only other bidder. But the frame was bent near the steering tube and a rear fork was bent.
But I did pick up these Delta lights still in the box. They work just fine.

Then Thursday night while waiting to pick my son up at practice, I saw this on Grand Rapids Craigslist. Picked it up on Friday.
A 1937 Colson with a Goodyear Wingfoot badge.

That Varsity looks too nice to parts out. But any way, I just did a new chain on a Sanwa recently and man i know they must have never lubed this chain. Had a devil of a time getting it off with a standard chain breaker. WOW!! what a job. So how many Varsity's do you have? Thanks for sharing. Razin.
