Didn't ride it far. Looks like the sweetheart sprocket has to go. The extra washer needed for the chain ring to clear the frame causes chain misalignment with the rear cog. I do have another smaller chain ring - just had my '' heart " set on the sweetheart sprocket. Boooooo.

How about trying an early Colson sweetheart chainring like was probably on there originally? I've seen smaller ones that may fit your frame better. I'm getting all itchy seeing that Schwinn piece on there...:confounded:

We finally made it back to the Orange Circle Ride yesterday after close to a year. Had a great time on the smooth and light '37 Colson straightbar, my girl on her lovely Mercury and Tim on his loaner '36 Colson Doublebar. We'll be back again soon!

I usually rotate my old Schwinns when I ride them in the early Florida morning before Mother Nature cranks up the heater. I just mounted new Continental 27” tires on my 1980 Suburban. I usually do 11 miles and during cooler days will do 17 miles 4-5 days a week. Here I took my water break on the Cross Seminole bike trail before heading back home. It took me 63 minutes to ride the 11 miles, break included. Not bad for an old fart of 63.

It's 15 miles from the Watertower in Sunset Beach, to West Jetty Park in Newport; 30 miles round-trip.
Warner is approx. 13 miles from end of peninsula; so probably 26 miles.
Great job!
The more I ride that loop, the more I want to.
