    Bought an old Schwinn and thought I better get on a cool site like this.

    Welcome. Post some pics of your new ride, and get out on it.

    Thanks. It'll need new tires and probably cables and such before both but for sure.

    Thanks. Next big question: should I restore this old bike I have or not? It's 40 years old. I suspect it needs new tires, tubes, cables yadda yadda...

    That's a question that's best posted in the Classic and Vintage forum. Lots of knowledgeable people there. Pics of the bike will help too.
