    Until just now I had not. All of my TA cranksets are installed on original TA spindles. While I generally trust Sutherlands I did want to verify it for myself, so I just took out a 1971 vintage TA...

    That's a 1972 (frame dates to Aug. '72) World Voyageur with many changes from stock. About the only original parts are the frame/fork and headset. Both the frame and fork were fully chromed under the...

    The Sky Blue paint and straight-style chainguard makes me think it might be a '67 Panther:

    The Schwinn could be a '67 Panther in Sky Blue with a 2-speed automatic hub. If so I think it would be well worth the price. What is the serial number stamped on the LH dropout? Post a pic of the...

    I see they normally go for up to about $250 to maybe $300 in very good condition and with a usable original Brooks B15, somewhat more for perfect/NOS condition and less without the Brooks or if the...

    Very nice! Note that Opaque Red one (3rd from the left) is a "not in the catalog" 1974 model and also a one-year only color, the Opaque Green one (5th from the left) is a one-year only (1972) color...

    It does look pretty cool. That stem looks exactly like the Nitto MT-5 used on the Cimarron, however I do think the finishes are different. The Nitto seems to be painted (powder coated?) while the...

    Here is the listing: Schwinn Continental

    It appears to be a '71 or '72 Continental with a 24" frame in Sierra Brown. Many of the parts on that bike would sell for $25 alone so I'd say it would be...

    I'm pretty sure that bike was built in Greenville MS. The K6xxxxx indicates that the frame dates from Nov. '86 (Unlike Chicago, Greenville used "I" = Sept.) and the 3496 badge date means the bike was...

    How would my perspective change if I built a frame? I'm honestly curious about why and where the discrepancy between design and execution happened. Wouldn't you want to know the same?

    We don't know which datum they used, which is why it would be great to hear from Waterford. If I were designing a frame I would want to base the main triangle off of a directly connected (i.e. welded...

    Normally if they were equal in originality and condition I'd choose the '73, but being full chrome and nearly original I'd have to go with the '81.
