Well, the Swiss moved on to a new design and from what I underrstand there are a few online sources that still carry spare parrts, but they are no longer manufactured. Im sure it would be easier to source parts overseas than here in the states

Thanks! I plan to just keep it as-is. There's so much history with this bike, it's really cool that it is still running great!

I plan to get some new tires to preserve the original ones. The size is 650b so I'm pretty psyched to try out this size of tire :)
