    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.

    Notice 'same-side-drive.' Looks real good + a real blast from the past!
    Enjoy the ride TWogether!
