    I think in the late 80s-very early 90s, after the introduction of SIS but before brifters, Shimano was absolutely the best stuff out there. If you're building a bike with brifters, I'd take Campy...

    The short answer is that it's extremely difficult to mess up a 3 speed.

    As a good general rule with department store bikes, the simpler they are, the better.

    Super Course never came with steel rims though, and I don't think I've ever seen any in white... was the Grand Prix ever made with 531 tubing?

    Looks like maybe an early 70s Super Course with a replacement crankset?

    Low end bike, zero effort single speed conversion, and no bar wrap. I'd put value at maybe $50, but that may be being a bit generous. Seller is dreaming if he thinks that's worth $200.
  7. Anyone need 27 x 7/8" tires? (Freebies)

    I have a set of older Schwinn Pro Circuit 27 x 7/8" tires. Sidewalls are in surprisingly decent shape, but the tread has some pretty significant cracks in it. Normally I'd throw away tires in this...

    Probably not, 19mm radius difference, if it did work it'd require one heck of a long reach brake.

    Paselas are great, but I don't think they're even made in the more common 590mm 26 x 1-3/8 size. As far as I know, the only tires still made in the 597mm 26 x 1-3/8 S6 size are the cheap Kendas.

    I've never used the Tourneys myself, but I've never heard anyone here say anything bad about them, and I trust people here more than any other bike forum out there. I hear a ton of complaints about...

    Any 8/9/10 speed cassette hub will work with a spacer added before putting the cassette on. You'll just have to spread the frame 3mm, which shouldn't be a big deal at all. The Tourney brifters you...

    1979 catalog page: 392278

    Looks to be in great shape. The tires that bike takes are a Schwinn-specific size, so make sure whatever ones you buy are marked as such. Also new brake pads are always...

    Rust, giant dent on the frame, everything in need of a total overhaul... even $75 might be too much for that one.

    You may have to do a teeny bit of filing but yeah they're the only easily available ones that I know of that will work. The set includes brake cables as well, for $6.99 total I believe. The cables...

    Should work with any non-Nexus hub. Shimano did at one point use a solid core cable to control their 3 speed hubs, which used a different bell crank, cable, and shifter (would be labeled "PPS"), but...

    The only thing I'd definitely change from your parts selection is the bar tape. White cork tape always looks good for about 5 minutes after you put it on, then as soon as you touch it, it will...

    I believe they're actually JIS Low-Profile, so I don't think 600 or any other cranks will work.

    Actually the 7410 used a different size bottom bracket spindle, but the 7400, 7401, and 7402 should all be the same.

    I would say that $250ish is reasonable in great shape, but that bike definitely needs work. Missing brake hoods, brake pads look to be the originals, cables look pretty old, I'm sure it hasn't seen...
