Hello Bikeforums.net members!
My name is Brad. I have been lurking here for a few weeks and finally decided to jump into the forum community. I have been in possession of a 1971 Schwinn Super Sport for a while, but until recently, have had no particular interest or need to work on it. That changed a few months ago when I decided to start training for a local sprint triathlon. Of course, that gives me reason to work on it!
The bike is in pretty rough shape, as the attached pictures demonstrate. But having a mechanical inclination, I appreciate the challenge. My hope is to ride this thing through a few sprint tri's before any serious upgrades, and hopefully enjoy some road cycling along the way.
