First off, I know that this bike is not necessarily quite vintage yet. This was the only forum I thought could help me. I recently got bitten by the road bike bug. I thought I'd get myself something very affordable to get my feet wet. I found this Schwinn Sprint at a thrift store in bad need of cleanup and tires, but mechanically everything functions well. I spent some time cleaning it up, oiling, and tuning. It has turned out to be a good starter bike for me and I'm just trying to find out a little about it. When was it made? Are there any obvious upgrades I can perform before buying a new bike? Funds are a bit tight now and I don't want to get an entry level bike. I'd just as soon ride the Schwinn than spend the cash like that. I'm gonna wait a while and buy something I'm really happy to ride. Some info would be greatly appreciated! It has a Made in China decal and it looks late 80s or early 90s to me, but I'm sure that someone knows a great deal more than me about it.
