So I picked up 2 Schwinn Varsity's from the 70's up on craigslist for $15 yesterday. Original plan was to take the one that fits me and convert it to a fixie/singlespeed and clean the other one up and sell it.
Now after reading more about the Varsity conversions it looks to be a bit more challenging than i want for my 1st build and that the Varsity may not be the best bike for my 1st fixie/single speed.
What are some other good candidate Bikes for conversion that are fairly common and easy to find that I could look for instead of these Schwinns.
BTW, i enjoy tinkering and working on bikes, and i realize that it would be easier and cheaper to buy a kilo tt. I'd like to build it because i enjoy the building and tinkering and I'd like something more unique.
