I have a Rare males 27" 1973 Schwinn Sport Tour. Its all orginal with Brooks seat and generator light on the front tire. It has the orginal Sport Le Tour tires. They do hold air. I have the orginal lock and cable but no key.I also have the orginal air pump that was sold with this bike new. Theres never been any parts replaced on the bike. I have seen this same bike sale in ebay for $950 restored and without the brooks seat or the air pump or generator light or orginal lock and cable. Its also has all the reflectors in good condition. It has the orginal leather straps on the pedals. This was a California bike. It has some suface rust on the spokes.$1200obo Thanks
Major, major, value in them original tires, rotten pedal straps, rusting spokes, keyless lock, reflectors, and Californianess of the bike.

What, pray tell, is Californianess? Have I just been insulted?

The seller seemed to think that "California bike" is a selling point.

Same with cars. CA doesn't use (or need to use) salt on their roads in winter. Of course... the seller may have over-looked airborne salt from ocean winds.

BTW: Nice bike!

Guy here paid big bucks for a one owner, "never seen snow", "never left California", 1970 440 Cuda from photos only. He never gave any thought that it may have been on the coast most of that time. When the transport company delivered it he thought it was going to collapse before they got it off the truck. He was able to salvage the drivetrain, interior and the firewall and cowl with the VIN tag, all the outer sheet metal and floor were full of tiny little rust holes. He eventually found a rust free shell in New Mexico and after $$$$$ and a couple years had a very nice 1970 440 Cuda.

At this time of year in the Midwest.... I at least... sort of envy Californians and the Californianess of their bicycles.

Bull feathers!!


Maybe in the beach cities there's a corrosion problem, but that represents a very small part of California's total area. There's a far larger part of the state that's nowhere near the evil corrosive vapors of salt water, where rust is almost non-existent. I'm lucky enough to live in one such place. If you find a corroded bike here, there's a very good chance it was imported from somewhere else, or else left on the lawn under the sprinklers.

"Custom Road Bike?" Looks to be a hybid bike with the bars flipped over, the FD and one chainring deleted, corncob, RD replaced by an idler pulley, really cheezy seat post (reversed) and seat (saddle). I love what he's done with it :-) Probably be worth more it were not "customized."

I especially like the way he detached to v-brake noodles, giving the bike something less than no stopping power.

Nah, it's just something the seller sees as a selling point. All his selling points are ridiculous; I don't care where the bike has been, I doubt it has been greased since it was first sold. Probably in need of complete overhaul. And the gloss he runs is just ridiculous; I hate it when I go to check ebay and find the same basic bike (minus the super valuable reflectors, keyless lock, rotting tires, zefal pump, etc.) selling for nothing near what the CL seller claimed:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-1972...item258638c759

I don't think the Brooks saddle is worth an extra 1,050$ somehow or other.

Looks like a not so great ATB that someone did a lousy job of converting to SS cruiser not even worth a $100 in most markets.
