    This one's fillet brazed, right?

    The price is right but the shipping might wreck the deal.
    I have spoken.

    Only the higher end Schwinns were fillet brazed. Not sure this model made that cut. Someone will know for sure. I think this one was EF.

    I am pretty sure that that bike was built using a method known as electroforging see here: http://www.sheldonbrown.com/varsity.html
