I recall that somebody here was waxing erotic about their kickstand-bridged Schwinn the other day. I have joined the club!

Found in an LBS's trash yesterday: one fillet-brazed Chicago Schwinn "Sport-Tourer", chromoly sticker, rust patina everywhere that isn't brass, my size perfect to be my college bike for the next two years, in other words, plus...that kickstand!

The really good part is the still-ggod-enough Brooks B15 and T/A Cyclotouriste double! The headset bearings were perfectly protected by lotsa grease. Haven't been into the BB yet, but the caps came right off, to my amazement.
