    Schwinn "Calamari" Peloton Build

    Jumping the gun and posting this because I just picked up this gem of a frame from CalamariChris.

    1986 Schwinn Peoloton - Columbus tubing with a beautiful white and black pro repaint with decals.

    Can't wait to dig into this build. Not sure if I can pull any strings to get something nicer but Shimano Ultegra 9 speed will have to do for now.

    Busy weekend but pics to come.

    Congratulations. They build a great bike!

    She doesn't have my surname anymore. She's all yours and if she brings you half as many happy miles as she brought me... um, well then I enjoyed her twice as much as you did.
    I'm getting ready to ride her sister in l'Etape in about an hour and a half.

    Yes, but she does have a 'racing provenance' that can be documented.
    Perhaps this adds value as a piece of amature racing history recorded in the annals of BikeForums.net!
