new here! decided to try to restore my 79' Schwinn traveler
hey folks, i just moved to an urban area with tons of things to do and nowhere to park. so i started biking again. i have an old 79 schwinn traveler that has seen better days, bent/rusted rims, rusted handle bars and rusted fork. i like the frame though. i can't seem to find anything on the net about the measurements needed to replace these parts, the wheels won't be a big issue. but i can't figure out what kind of fork i'm going to need. i have found a few 27" varsity forks but don't know if they'd work on my traveler. and ideas on where i can find these dimensions of the bike?
