Our new(to us) 77 Schwinn Breeze!!




New paint, chain and tires. Previous owner completely restored the bike. I also met the person who owned it before the last owner, told me it was a rusted pile when he gave it away. I got it for a bargain of only $85!!! We love riding it around the city.
Heres my toy:

Free Agent like an '01, got it in high school. That is all.

It's a Chicago Schwinn .... the chrome on those bikes is incredible. It takes alot of effort to trash one of those bikes. Probably will last another 100 years with normal maintenance.

Underneath the fenders have a bit of rust but nothing a bit of cleaning will do.

We already had to replace the front bearing, the day we got it I was gonna go for a ride and the front bearing falls apart. lol Now it rides real smooth, needs a new seat. :/
