Schwinn Project Complete
I had this old Schwinn Varsity in the basement and decided to build it up into a fixed gear. The rear rim was trashed and the front wasn't much better, so I used the wheelset/tire combo from my Raleigh project. I slapped on a Surly 17t cog (rotafixed) with a dura-ace lockring. Original one-piece crank with 39 teeth. Original stem with 5" risers from ebay. Grips are cheapo Gel-lites. Chain line is straight as a mofo for anyone thinking of converting their Varsity. Kick stand? Hell to the YES!
