Came home with a new toy!
So I came home with a new toy...a vintage (well nearly, the front wheel is a new deep v style 16H aero spoke wheel) Chicago made Schwinn Premis--for free! I went down to TX to speak and the coordinator of the class had this old Schwinn sitting on his front porch that an old roommate left there 2 years ago--he said I could have it. It's got spots of surface rust, but I hate to sand it down and get rid of the original paint job. I'm debating whether to restore it to working condition and use it, or get it in working condition (it needs entirely new cabling) and sell it to a collector for some good coin. I've been needing a good commuter, so I'm tempted to keep it since it was free. What think ye. I know I could post in the roadie forum, but this thread would be on page 3 within 5 minutes over there, and I might get kinder responses to an older bike here in foo.
