So I really enjoy my 80's Schwinn Super Le Tour but would like to have a modern shifting system. I don't want a carbon fiber bike I want the look of steel.
Here are a few of my questions. I know this will not be an authentic restore.
Can the BB be upgrade?
I am thinking of going from a 6 speed freewheel to a modern cassette. I know the rear drop out will have to be spread. Will this intefer with the possibility of installing a triple chain ring?
I know I will go to 700c wheels and that will require long reach brakes.
Am I overlooking anything at this point?
I plan to shop ebay for parts over the fall and winter months.
Any input would be great.
