    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    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

    That looks like a nice fair weather commuter. It is too pretty to ride in bad weather

    I love barcons. You have room to mount fenders, a rack, and a blinky and you'll be set to go.

    Thanks The other bike is a Ross Apollo 5 Speed, it was Ross's entry in the "Muscle bike" era, I got it on trade, its almost mint, never ridden, ever!

    That Ross Apollo is sweet. I know it wouldn't be "correct", but I'd swap that shifter for one of the top tube console units from an ealier model for some extra "Muscle".

    I like the Schwinn, but that Apollo is truly one of a kind. Its like a mutant Schwinn Stingray.

    I am with robtown. The Super Sport will be a fine commuter with the addition of some fenders and racks. You are fortunate to own a classic and durable machine.
