Schwinn World Sport and Ross value inquiry
A guy brought them to me today.
The World Sport looks like a '79 (on the R chain stay) and has Suntour Spirt FD, Horizon RD, chrome wheels, Suntour stem-mount shifters. Lugged frame with lined lugs. Decent shape, will look very nice with just a clean-up. He paid $20 and wants to know if it's worth more cleaned up with tires or turned into a ss/fixie. 56cm. I haven't a clue. Looks like Weinmann for Schwinn centerpulls, steel bars, SR stem, gaspipe seat post. Rides nice. Silstar crankset, 3-piece.
The Ross was nicer, lugged steel, lined lugs, pretty nice bike. Avocet saddle, much nicer Suntour friction, also stem-mounted, Weinmann 610's, alloy Weinmann wheelset, DC TT cable guides, DC brake levers, SR stem, Avocet saddle, MKS pedals with Christophe clips. He's wondering if it's worth upgrading. I have a full 2x6 indexed group that'd work on it. I also have a 2x9 set of shifters and a wheelset that may work, too. Worth the upgrade?
