Gang, I have a 80s Schwinn Le Tour that I have been converting to a town bike. I have upright bars, new vintage style brake handles from Velo Orange, new brake cables, housing, Park cable cutter, nice workshop, nice bike stand...I'll be your best friend if someone will drop by and give me a lesson on installing brake cables. I have all the parts and tidbits needed, I simply lack the know how.
I'll provide the beer, coffee, cigars, crack, well not crack, but oh well...Anyhow I live near Beltline and Coit road in far north Dallas. Late weekday evenings are good for me (like after the kids are in bed, 9ish) or weekend morning or afternoons are good.
I just ordered a new Schwinn Madison today and I have a feeling my wife is going to want me to sell one to make room for it so getting this one running is a priority! Thanks!
