I have one bike, since new, 1973 Schwinn Le Tour. (bought on the spur of the moment, when the bike first debuted)
I am pretty much strictly a commuter for about the last 18 months.
?#1 The bike is "Schwinn Approved" from Japan. Read somewhere else that this bike was manufactured by Fuji. True/False?
The "big" chain ring is worn, not worn out, yet. My LBS tells me they cannot find a replacement for it.
?#2a Does anyone know where I could find a replacement for the chainring?
?#2c Future availability?
?#3 Is this a "classic" bike, or just an old bike?
As much as I would like a new high-tech road bike, I have no budget for one for the forseeable future, so I am highly motivated to keep this bike in good repair and I am cheap! Also, as I have been riding the bike more (~4500 commute miles last year) I find I am becoming attached to it all over again.
Jeff, still a fat biker
