Thanks everyone. I got a 13/16 seatpost and saddle that works. And I flipped the collar to move the saddle aft-wards, as suggested by Waldo. There's just s single bolt that runs through the rails at one location, so I can't slide the saddle any further sadly. But, I'll give this positioning a try to see how I feel on it.
On another note, the wheels are a mess and I'm thinking about switching things up. Anyone have any recommendations? The current ones are, of course, the Schwinn-specific 26 x 1 3/8. Has anyone tried standard 26" (559) wheels? How about 650A? 650B (yes, I'm an enthusiast)? I need to measure drop-out to chainstay/seatstay bridges still. Right now, the rear wheel has a coaster hub, but I'm not against building it up as a single speed and installing brakes (need to check distances from brake bolts to whatever wheel sizes I'm contemplating).
Thanks for all the great input!
