Hi everyone. I am new to cycling and this is my first post, ad I need your help! I recently bought a Giant Roam Hybrid and I am really loving it, however lately I have wanted to get my hands on a road bike. Since I just bought a new bike recently I dont want to spend a lot of money, and i like the idea of owning a vintage bike, so I have been looking on craigslist and I have found a bike that might be a winner.
Here is a link to the post on craigslist:
It is a vintage 1977 Schwinn Varsity. It is listed as mint except the tires, and from the photos the paint job looks to be in good condition without rust. I was told that the tires are dry but show no wear. Its a 10 speed. 56 CM,which is the size am looking for, and the serial is CN so i know its made in March 1977.
I guess I am asking is this a good deal for $100. I am pretty new to cycling and dont know much about the worth of these older bikes so any help would be amazing. Ive been told that these old bikes are very heavy but are built really well.
Another option would be for me to just wait and save some money and buy a better road bike down the road while I keep riding my hybrid, but that wont fix my instant desire right now.
Thanks in advance!
