Trav -

welcome to the forum!

there is an actual cycle marque termed Conti

using it as shorthand for a model of Schwinn would be fine in a Schwinn specific forum

usage in this forum is misleading to readers

perhaps one of the moderators could change the header to read "Schwinn Continental" for clarity...

Details and a pic would help.
If investment was $25 then your probably correct.
If investment was $250 then your probably out of touch
