    I am hoping to do a drop bar conversion on a Schwinn CrossCut that I have had "forever". I also want to lighten it up a bit. My goal is to modify it to a point where I can enjoy some light touring...

    Call me a Neanderthal, but cheap beer, boxed vino and unopened bottles of booze from garage sales make my day. I even recently acquired a Mr. Beer kit to make my own brew this winter. I'm not overly...

    Pretty neat! There are quite a few other clips on early cycling that also pop up. A picture, or "video clip" in this case, is worth a thousand words. Thanks!

    16 bikes for $150 (for the lot) in Highland Falls, NY (near West Point). 16 bikes

    Noticed at least one really nice looking road bike, and a Ross mountain bike with bull moose bars in the lot. ...

    Thanks! Black is also easy to touch up. My first 'nice' bike as a kid was an S-10-S "Special Road Racer" in white.

    Set up like this, my Fuji S-12-S probably would have been considered a "touring" bike when new back in '81. A Peugeot U-08 with a Pletscher rack and panniers could pass as a "touring" bike back then!...

    I haven't had them do any work on any of my bikes, since I do all my own work. They are, however, very helpful and knowledgeable. Their reputations are also pretty good.

    I am better than they are. I am a better dresser than they are. I am more modest than they are. My sense of humor is better than theirs. :innocent:

    Really, really nice bike. Seriously nice neighbor to be so generous. If the bike fits, if it isn't trashed, and you like the way it rides, definitely worth investing in. Check out the special...

    The bigger folks get the benefit of more metal for their money, as well as more cloth in a suit for their money. Enjoy the S-12-S Ltd. They are nice bikes.

    In your size frame, the S-12-S is the bike to get. Really nice bike in the "affordable" bike category. Here is a link to the catalogs. You can compare specs on your own.

    No steel rims on the Touring 18, which would be scary on a touring bike. Mine still has the original alloy Araya rims it came with.

    I have an '83 Touring 18. It came with 27" rims. The rear wheel is a 36 spoke, versus 40 spoke. It was made in Japan. Great bike. One of my all-time favorite rides. Somebody upgraded the wheel...

    The upsweep you find with Randonneur bars might, in combination with other changes, help. Best, though, to get the correct size.

    I like vintage bikes and cycling. If frame size is correct, and frame is undamaged, I would buy it for $40 to $60 if it was what I like. Maybe you can pick up another bike for parts to transfer...
