On Training Wheels
Here is my what I call the "Varsity Super 12". Started out as 1965 Tourist model with many missing parts.
I stripped it even more down and raided my parts bins. Has now Shimano 600 Crank and brakes, Araya Aluminum Rims and a 12spd freewheel in the rear. I like piecing together bikes, especially if the end result is about 10lbs lighter than the actual Varsity.
The BB was converted with these common available adapters and are easy to install.

Schwinny

Finally riding a big boys bike
Update.....
Put together a mock-up of what direction it is going.

These will be the temp wheels until I get the prelude rims polished and laced to their new 2 speed hub. Both are 27"s
The seat and bars wont be that high up, but this is the attitude it will have.
Right now Im thinking 72' Schwinn Opaque Green for the color.
When I find a suitable SS frame, this one will be re-arranged for sale and a lot of the parts will be swapped over.
I plan on that SS ChroMo frame being white with the racer RWB bands.
But... who knows? Its all a jumble till its not.
2 pics appropriately poised in front of my shops contemplation Love seat. (I love to contemplate)
I think it looks pretty good with a mix of modern road bike and vintage board racer
It weighs 16lbs as it sits. This may end up hovering around 25lbs... pretty good for a mild steel frame, 1pc crank
