    Sadly, the top tube cable guides are the weak spot in the entire lineup of better Schwinn bikes of that era. Only proper fix is to remove all three and replace with brazed on ones, then repaint. ...

    ^This.
    You'd be surprised at how much flexibility you'd have with a compact crank and wide range cogs. Your RD will accept up to 28 according to Shimano, but mine works well up to 32 in friction. ...

    Ultegra 6600 with DA down tube shifters, either 9 or 10 speed. Mate that with a Sugino XD or RD compact crankset, a new Mavic Open Pro/Ultegra hub wheel set and a pair of R400 brake levers and you...

    I'm using a triple on my Merck Century frame but it's a compact: 50/36/28. Shimano Ultegra 6600 triple FD clears it just fine, with a little room to spare. Not sure it would do the same with a 53.

    Vintage, you beat me to it. Those older Shimano-specific downtube braze-ons will have to be modified if you intend to fit anything more modern than Shimano 6207 friction shifters. But, as I've...

    Ronsonal lighter fluid. Key is to keep changing the clean white rag you use, otherwise you just move the dirt around.

    I prefer the feel of 5500-5510 over 5600, and agree with Robbie that an all-black 5510 setup would be the shizzle.

    But I like 6600 even better than that, and they are much more readily available...

    Well, he does have a point.

    However, I've been surprised on many occasions on how well DA stuff from that 7403 era cleans up. Quality finish that's very durable.

    I would say...still too long. Try to make mine flat out of the cable stop, then a 180 bend into the RD. But no harm done unless you find your cable flapping around back there.

    It will work fine. Inner rings are not pinned or ramped, should work with any number of speeds. Just make sure you've got a 130mm BCD brankset. Same ring bolts should work, too.
