Hi all I am new to this site and my purpose is to learn more about a bike that I have sitting in my garage. Noone here can ride it so it just sits. He (my bike as I am a she) is a Schwinn World Sport if anyone can give me more imformation on him I would apreciate it. I am an amputee and I have not gotten into riding bikes yet plus it is too tall for me anyway.
Thanks

Welcome to BF. Have you considered a trike? That might be easier for you.

The folks in the Classic & Vintage forum can tell you all about it. They like pics too.
