Schwinn World Tourist....

I spotted one at the pawn shop yesterday for $30. I came home and did a search on it and saw all the good stuff on these bikes. I'm going back today and get it. Anything I might need to look for before I buy?? I know the obvious stuff (I think)........

I know this thead says "Peugeot" in the title, but the content should answer some of your questions:
Peugeot U0-8, could it be worth $40?

BTW, I paid $25 for my World Tourist so if the one you're looking at is in good shape, $30 is reasonable.

I paid 40.00 for a lifetime local (important to me) ladies world tourist with a 3 speed coaster(no front brake, take that sheldon brown!!!) it is honetly one of the nicer riding bikes in the fleet. I tow the kids around on it and the wife bombs it every now and then. The crazy thing about this bike is that it spent 5 winters as in ice sculpture in Yosemite (long story) with no rust!! anyway, buy it and bomb it!
