How many of you started on, or at least owned an old school Schwinn Varsity? Not this new bike for which Schwinn reincarnated the name, but the original steel 10-speeds with the stem shifters, steel rims and plastic bar tape. My sister and I got matching Chestnut brown Varsities in the late 1970s when we were in high school. She still has hers. I let mom sell mine years ago but am wishing I hadn't as I'm getting old and nostalgic. They might not have been great road bikes, but dang we put on a lot of miles.
Not mine, but this picture looks just like it.
