    Looking for my second love

    I am 57 and have been long-distance touring since I bought my first 10-speed, a gleaming blue Schwinn Varsity when I was 14. Right now I am trying to track down my second bicyle love, a 1978 baby blue Centurion LeMans. It was a fantastic bike. I did a double century on it and lots of tours. Loved the bar-end shifters for loaded touring. But I bought a new Schwinn aluminum road bike in the mid-80's and then donated the LeMans to Cycle Across Maryland for their youth program. Now I want it back. If I could find the frame (23"/56cm) I could restore it. I still have my ex-wife's brown LeMans of the same vintage with all its original components. I would greatly appreciate anyone's help in the community to track this bike down. Thanks and hello. Doug

    Welcome to Bike Forums Doug.

    Good Luck on that one.
    Do you have any photos of the bike?

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2015 Cannondale SuperSix EVO carbon

    Welcome Doug and good luck locating the bike.
    I had a mid-80s Schwinn LeTour that I loved, but that was then. It doesn't compare to today's bikes. Have you looked at any new bikes lately?
