So I picked up this bike for a good price and am about to break it down for a deep clean and bring it up to snuff.
Anything I should know about it? Special tools?
(I think 1977) All original Le Tour II, Serial #3206 (320th day of 1976?)
27" Steel rims
Old style seatpost.
I read it is not the highest or most desirable and not the lightest.
Any upsides to being a Japanese built Schwinn?
Looks to be sun faded on the clearcoat some.
Any advice on bringing the paint back? Lightly sand off the clear and (diy) reshoot it with clear? Leave it as is for "patina"?
