I picked up a early to mid 80's schwinn super sport that I thought I would part out but it's just too nice to break up. It's a small frame around 48,49 cm. So it would be perfect a shorter person, maybe your wife or for a child. It's in great shape, very clean, it's an off white pearlescent finish. I wanted the complete shimano 600 groupo on it. Derailleurs and shifters are the arabesque kind, 600 cranks (170), 600 side pull brakes and levers with great supple black hoods, 600 sealed hubs laced to weinmann aero rims, it even has a 600 sealed headset as well as a beautiful pair of 600 pedals (aero design) with the hard to find toe clips. It's a selle italia saddle with a sr post, stem and bars are french, Belleri I believe is the brand. The stem is quite nice, silky smooth finish. The frame is free of decals, it does have the schwinn super sport headbadge. I don't think that this is a repaint because it looks like a finish I've seen on other schwinns fo the time. Maybe it was orginally bought as a frameset? I also believe that these were made with columbus tubing. It's a 12 speed btw.

I was about to tear it down when I decided to take it for a spin first. It's a great ride, I"ve been tempted to keep it and just get a longer seat post for it. I believe at the time it was made it was 2nd or 3rd in the schwinn lineup. It's definately a sport/race bike. No eyelets for fenders or racks, two sets of braze ons for water bottles and even came with a paramount water bottle holder.

I would like to see this go to someone who is going to ride it and appreciate it and not someone who is going to part it out (I could do that myself and use the parts). I'm asking what I paid for it, 200.00 plus shipping. Let me know if you have any questions. http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/marcgarcia80@ameritech.net/album?.dir=c83a&.src=ph&store=&prodid=&.done=http%3a//pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/marcgarcia80@ameritech.net/my_photos There's a link to some pics.
