Schwinn Super Le tour 12.2

If everything works the way it looks, it sure is... This 76ish bike had lightweight DB japanese frame and Shimano 600 RD, Araya alloy rims with QRs and was catalogue weight 26.5 lbs. Not a bad buy for $200

With a little elbow grease (cleanup), it would probably be worth it. I would discount it somewhat for cleanup/grease/bearings/and so on.

And as pointed out below, wrong time of year.

I personally think it is a little high for western michigan in the dead of winter... but then again, not that many nice bikes show up around there.

Had a 1977 in full chrome and a black one. These are excellent riding bikes. Panasonic made. I think $200.00 might be a little high since you are going to have to replace parts , tire, tubes regrease etc.
