Help new to biking and riding, just bought a 1980 Varsity
Hey all I am excited to be here. I just bought a 1980 Schwinn Varsity that seems to be in ok condition. I do need help though. There are a few dings in the paint and wondered if anyone had a suggestion for maybe repairing it? Also the shifter seems to have a hard time down shifting but not going up any suggestions? And finally I believe the back rim may be slightly bent as if it feels like I am riding over small speed bumps constantly. I have already moved the handlebars back down. I got to say I have read some threads in here and it seems like a foreign language a lot of times so please talk to me as if I am stupid I will take no offense because at this point I feel very dumb when reading some of these. I paid $80 for it so I figured not a bad price to get into biking at.
