    Can I squeeze a 1990 in here? This is my 1990 World Sport, which I bought new from my local Schwinn dealer (still in business) when I was in college. This bike replaced my mid '70s Le Tour, which was my grandfathers....I got into an accident with it and stupidly threw it away when I was in high school.

    After a year or so, I started jonesing for a bike again, so my girlfriend (now wife) helped me buy my World Sport. After I rode it a couple of times...I just lost interest in it. It sat in my mom's garage until about three years ago, when I decided to particpate in the American Cancer Society's Bike a Thon in memory of my uncle, who had recently passed away from cancer. I dug the WS out of my mom's garage and took it to the same Schwinn dealer that I bought it from....they couldn't get over the condition of it...it was like "looking at a time machine"...

    This bike also rekindled my love for bikes...and while it may have fallen near the bottom of my pecking order...I love it...it's nothing special compared to the Preludes and Super Sports pictured here...but hopefully my boys will be arguing over who gets it some day...

    Great bikes. I'm resisting the urge to post the '87 Prelude I traded away to another BF member.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    Thanks man. The bell is indeed a Japanese Crane bell, I got it in trade. I used the regular handle bar mount it came with to mount it to the stem, worked just fine. I got the bar mount water bottle cage on a bike I bought, I removed it and saved it before I flipped the bike. I'll have a look see if I can find a site that sells them. Here it is. http://www.icyclesusa.com/catalog/h2...ount-black.htm

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    As Doohickie mentioned, he had the Prelude above and traded it to me for a Raleigh Supercourse.

    I've also got this '87 Prologue that I picked up not long ago. It's not a fixed gear anymore (and doesn't have aerobars), but it's not finished either, so these pictures will suffice until later.



    And this '89 Le Tour that I got at a garage sale.



    And this one's not late 80's, but it is 80's. It's my '83 Voyageur SP. I had been looking for a touring bike and came across someone on CL that had this and newer Voyageur, so I got this one.

    '88 LeTour. This is the sellers photo. The bike has since been reworked using Shimano 105 7 speed indexed components.



    '87 Super Sport. Reworked with Sugino compact crank and Shimano 600 tricolor 8 speed components.



    '87 Circuit. Reworked with Ultegra 6500 9 speed components running as an 8 speed.



    '87 Prologue. Reworked with Dura Ace 7700 9 speed components.



    '89 Paramount standard(not OS tubing). Reworked with Dura Ace 7400/7410 8 speed components. This is not a current photo. The bike now has downtube indexed shifters and a Nitto dirt drop stem to get the handlebar up higher for my 58 year old body.



    I recently completed a rework of a yellow/white '88 Prelude but haven't taken any pics of it yet.

    I love the late eighties Schwinns!

    I know the Waterford paramounts don't get as much love as the old Chicago paramounts, but I think they look great and are an awesome ride. But I am a little biased.

    My 1986 Schwinn Prelude. The reason my two Schwinns are special, is the cost. The Prelude was a $50 CL find, the Traveler was a $25 thrift store find.

    My $50 Prelude (1986)




    My $25 Thrift Store 86 Schwinn Traveler... this belongs to my wife, as you can very well see!

    ^^^ Awesome deals on those two bikes!! Very Nice!! Seems you get a LOT of bang for the buck on these babies. I plan on upgrading mine to at least 7 speeds and swap out for a compact crank setup. We have tons of Hills around here and i dont think i would be loving that 42 tooth small gear in the front for too long!! However, I might just go with a MTB freewheel/derailluer/chain swap first to see what it does. If I had a 34 in the rear I might be able to keep the crank setup. Just wondering out loud...Of course any input about this from the Schwinn masters around here would be greatly appreciated!!!

    '87 Circuit that I picked up this morning. Had been on CL for 2 weeks so I figured it might be time to try for the winter season discount offer. All original except for pedals. The tires will probably blow as I type though since I put 85 pounds in and they both have a bubble. Gonna lose what's left of the cyclo puter.

    I now have a red and black Circuit that are both my size, 24" frame and love the way they ride. The red '88 came with Sante bits and Concor saddle that I sold off to finance 9 speed Ultegra/Dura Ace mix on it. The Suntour Sprint components on the '87 work really well IMO and look nice too.

    This is as found condition. Should clean up nicely. Concor Saddle is in great shape. It might go on the bay to make this deal really sweet.

    My 1987 Voyageur. The 80's Schwinns seem to be under appreciated and for that reason can be a great bargain. I think they have super comfortable rides.

    And the Prelude is my "beater bike", but quickly climbing out of that status with its good ride. The rear wheel was bent, and I had some dingy wheels laying around, with freewheels on them, so I swap. Sent the Atom to another poster, sent the seat to another poster, and threw on some leftover tires off my Litespeed, and HELLO, the Prelude is sweet. Hoping to land another cheapy Schwinn in a couple days...

    The black Circuit was on CL for 2 weeks for too much so it didn't move. I built up the red one about a year ago a little at a time when I found the parts at a bargain price. Except the used 9 speed DA brifters. Santa brought me those.
