Schwinn Crescent...

Though not a Schwinn enthusiast, I picked this bike up for less than a case of beer. It appeared to be very little used and I wanted the RX100 eight speed group on the bike, Brifters and all...



I am interested to know a bit about the bike, in case anyone knows anything about it. The frame and fork is now bare and ready for who knows what. The RX group will be fitted to this old Empire Professional, my to and from town junk bike...

Well......as an oddity, being one of the VERY few road bikes made with a suspension, it MIGHT be worth keeping as-is. An RX-100 groupset isn't terribly valuable, and I suspect that the value of this bike someday will hinge on whether or not it's "correct". I'd put this bike away for about 25 years, if I were you.

The RX group is in a box, waiting... Th frame/fork is about to head to the scrap yard. And, 25 years from now, I will be close to 100 years old. Long term planning, at this time, is a waste of time. After all the years, I have learned that the only time that counts in now.

Bikes: No-name LH drive track. Also ride an Exxon Graftek, a Masi, a Trek R200 or a RR Boneshaker for fun!

700c suspension fork

If you post the frame​ and fork on CL for 2x the cost of that case of beer someone will talk you down a bit and you'll have your group for free, and some pocket jingle to boot!

Why not? It is a bit or work to pack up and ship, but for, let's say $25.00 + shipping, it might be something someone somewhere might want. I will post it on the For Sale forum for that amount and include the stem, seat post and front derailleur to sweeten the deal.
