    Do you have a picture of the broken part? I think the Le Tour had a 3 piece crank and if you broke the pedal off, you will need to figure out how to get the threaded part out of the crank arm. I...

    I ditched my original Schwinn one for one like this with quick release, but the one I bought was Shimano and I did not pay that much for mine.

    My local bike shop had the Schwinn sized seat posts in stock, so go check at your local shop. I think they are the old mtb size as well. My 1980ish Specialized Hard Rock has the same seat post size.

    Sorry to hear of your loss. Buy yourself a beater and save what parts you can. Rebuild when you can.

    As was pointed out, you can get the nyloc type lock nuts. Then you can set the tension without it coming loose. You can get them in any hardware store.

    I like the way my old '71 Super Sport rides, so I know what you mean. Do not be afraid to use one of those bottom bracket adaptors so you can run a modern BB and lighter 3 piece crank setup. It...

    Cables can make a difference. I went to upright bars on my '71 Schwinn SS as I just could not handle drops at 50. The rear brake cable wants to pull the handle bars to one side. i.e. the cable...

    One thing I did with a Sugino RD2 crank was to put the chainline to the inner ring (42t), then took an old chainring and cut the teeth off (50t) to make a chainring guard on the outter position. ...

    Sounds like the comment from the local bike shop. Minneapolis, where all bikes go to be stolen.

    Well, it seems to be a $150 bike per a quick search. My guess is a new bike. However, if it is just cables, you can replace those for not much money.

    I worked a '71 SS. It is amazing, well not really, how much weight you can save by ditching the 1 piece crank and freewheel. I have mine setup as a single speed right now, but want to do a 1 x 7 or...

    Thanks. It is for a set of Weinmann / Schwinn approved centerpulls from a '71 Super Sport. I also need to get a set of the salmon pads to go along with it.

    Why do some have issues with the cable cutters for brake cable? Is is due to the diameter of the housing or what? It sounds like most wire rope cutters work great on the cable and shift cable, but...

    You can try an easy out. Drill a pilot hole of the appropriate diameter, and then insert the easyout. You would want to get a colbalt bit, rather than high speed steel.
