    schwinn super sport?

    I'm curious about y'alls impressions.

    Super Sport from mid/late 80s at least.

    worth paying $75 for a complete bike?

    Don't know yet what state it's in (do know what district it's in, har har), but I'm looking to put a rear wheel on and go.

    And I don't know crap about Schwinns.

    Extra credit, what's the best bikeboom frame you've fixed up?

    Shepard Park's about as far north as you can go in DC and still be east of Rock Creek. It's a 10-min walk to Takoma and a 20-min walk to downtown Silver Spring.

    I'll ask the vintage people, thanks for the info.

    I converted a Schwinn Le Tour (42x16t) into a commuter.
    I have a custom built rear wheel with a Campy Record track hub.
    It's a nice riding bike.
    "We are few now, but one day we will rule." That's what one of my fixies whispered as I walked by. I nodded in agreement, and thanked it for not waking the others.

    I was checking out a super sport the other day... they're light... seem pretty sturdy... I guess if all the componants are in REALLY nice condition, then 75 would not be bad.

    Yeah, I would say it depends on the quality of the components, what kind of shape it's in, etc. It would be a great price for a complete, ready-to-go old road bike (one that shifts right, good brakes, rims trued, rides well).

    However, since you're looking to fix it, you could probably do a little better if you're willing to wait and scrounge. The extra money would buy you a couple cheap-ish tires or some bar tape.
