The Beast lives

Here it is. This is a vintage 1978 Schwinn Twinn Sport.

I just recently picked her up from the LBS where she was being revitlized. (new front wheel, rebuilt back wheel, new cables, break pads, new Brooks B-17N for me, and more)

53lbs of rolling blue steel!

I put about 44 miles on her Saturday.
