    Nice area. We probably passed each other more than a few times I'm sure...

    I've also spent a ton of time at Groveland Tap.

    Not as cool as some of the bikes in this thread but of all the bikes I've gone through, it's one of my most enjoyable to ride. I've posted it before on this site but I guess not in this thread.

    I keep all my bikes inside the house. To get them to the room I'm allowed to store/display them, they need to go up/down a set of stairs. I don't care for carrying the bike in a traditional...

    Yep, Schwinn cage. Had it in the parts bin and mounted it on the downtube to keep it away from the decals. It's the 47 325.

    Nice bike. My '83 620 looks similar and I love the ride. Don't know what I'll end up doing with it though, as it's about a size too small. Hope you enjoy yours!

    Since I referenced it, here's my SS. It mostly pulls spare bike duties or is borrowed to a friend for a ride from time to time.

    Thank you.

    I ordered it as I wanted a friction FD. Regardless of which direction I go down the line, I much prefer friction up front so I can trim. Felt a little weird paying more for that than I...

    At first blush, the chrome on the fork isn't great, flaking in one spot. If I was to powder coat, I'd just have the whole thing done and not have to worry about it later down the line. I'm just not a...

    I picked up a '77 Schwinn Superior today for practically nothing. I've previously restored a '72 SS so when this came up I had to get it. It's extremely rough, so I have a few questions.

    I'd say it's hard to be 100% positive if you're going to have clearance for fenders on 27in wheels with the VO fenders. My Grand Jubile cuts it pretty close in some areas, namely at the fork bridge...

    Road, gravel, and cross? I much prefer solo. I like to be on my own at my pace, doing the distance (and any stops) I'm interested in without having to account for other's interests.

    I love my '78 Grand Jubile. Set it up how it feels best and put some miles on it. They're very sound bikes, you could do a lot worse in that time period.
