    1979 Schwinn Continental Help

    Hey there BF, got a question for yall. Found a pretty nice looking 1979 Schwinn Continental in blue, pretty much new tires, no rust, everything lined up the way it should be, looks and feels good. 60cm frame, it's a little dirty, I would want to give it a good tune up right away but it's ride-ready now, asking price is 125, from what I can tell that seems about on par with where it should be, any thoughts on this bad boy? Would be my first road bike, it's only a 10 speed but for the area I live in that's ok, anybody have one (not necessarily the exact year) or any thoughts/experiences with them? Should still be good yea? Thanks in advance guys.

    $125 (or less) for a clean / ride-ready Schwinn Continental is GOOD to go for me.

    Built like tanks, as heavy as one too. $125 is about right, as people like them. I used to ride centuries on mine as a kid.
