Before getting to the bike, why are you looking to take 300 pounds of stuff?

The bike would not be a great choice. Really heavy, not designed to carry a heavy load, steel rims on the wheels, blade fork, lack of fittings for fenders, racks, water bottles, -- I could go on..... Could you do a tour on a 72 Varsity, sure. Would it be as much fun as on a better bike with more gears, better brakes etc etc -- I don't think so.
