1987 Schwinn Le Tour

This bike is a blast! I've had this Frame hanging in my garage for about 2 years along with various parts from my parts bin. It's a bike I found at the thrift store for 15 bucks. Loved the red, and thought maybe one day I would do something with it. Wasn't sure what. woke up in the middle of the night, couldn't sleep, and started playing with parts. Shes got a lot of scuffs and scrapes, but thats what I like about it. A fun city beater

Thanks brother! You aren't kidding! Can't stay away from my garage, too many ideas! By the way, I am really digging those Bridgestones you built! Sick! Doing something similar to your RB2 with a Trek 930. Thanks for the comment!
