Schwinn Travelller III Restore (sort of)
So I picked up a Traveller III today.
Cheap. Not in great shape so it will take some work.
I don't really plan to make it look like new - neither perfectly restored nor really like it would have looked like in the late 70's.
I am planning on replacing:
- Tires - sidewalls a bit dry-rotted. I am going to go with 1".
- Brake levers - I am going to dig around on ebay for some of those cross levers
- Then just the normal stuff - bar tape, new cables, some Kool Stop brake pads.
It weighs 32 lbs according to some sites I found so only a couple more than some of the LeTours I had fixed up previously.
I think I am addicted to fixing 70's Schwinn road bikes.
