Oh, that's lovely talofa! Are those the Dia-Compe Alpha II, white epoxy alloy components? I think another member has one of these bikes, with the same purple/blue paint scheme.

I have never met anyone else riding a Premis.
Yes, the brakes are the Alpha II, and they have performed wonderfully.
I will start looking through this section for the other Premis.

NICE! There must be something in the air! I picked this up on Friday!

Windsor frame, IRO wheel set



From what I can tell, Windsors were sold in the mid- late 70's. But who cares, it rides pretty nice!

This was my first bike as an adult (1984 Bridgestone 200). I commuted to college and a few jobs on her until we got hit by a car. She's the next bike I'm going to overhaul. I know she's low end, but she's in awfully nice shape, considering.

talofa--

A Premis of the same color was my first racing bike. I still have it, though it's not currently assembled. I was working for a Schwinn shop when I purchased mine. The Premis was a one-off Schwinn sold upon receiving a "good deal" for these components. It includes the Dia-Compe brakes, the SR/Sakae crank, white Suntour Cyclone derailleurs, and silver Weinmann rims with Maillard hubs. The original saddle was a blue suede (though I forget the brand, will have to go look) and the bike came with white tape. The bike was also offered in a white/grey combination, but it just doesn't have the panache of the three-tone purple.

Hi Michael
Did you race your Premis? How did you like the way it handled? I never had any problem with mine other than it getting a little twitchy when it would approach 45mph on some high speed downhills, but a little adjustment of the tire pressure would take care of that. What is the date stamped on the Schwinn disk on the head?

Thought I would try to attach a pic of my recently made roadworthy again '82 Colnago. Mix of Campy NR & SR parts. Will need new brake hoods soon and needed new handlebar tape maybe 10 years ago....

Columbia

Finally finished refurbishing my 1936 Columbia which I got about 1950. Went through two younger brothers and many years of neglect before I got it back this spring. I added the two speed New Departure hub about '52 or '53. Rack is a Schwinn repro.

The seat looks a little precarious, but the bike looks like it's in gorgeous condition.

Another Premis (and my do it yourself frame repair)

Here are a few pix of my 88 Premis, I noticed a lot of chain rub on the FD, then found a bad joint at the bottom bracket lug to seat tube joint, with a small crack in the lug. Not wanting to throw away a great riding frame(I paid 10 bucks for the bike, so not much risk), I decided to fix it myself. I just removed the wheels, crank, and BB, sanded off the old paint, then cleaned the joint with brake clean and compressed air. Next I stuck the frame in a vise and rebrazed the joint(and the tiny crack) with silver solder. Didn't even burn up the Columbus sticker. I have over 60 miles on it since the repair, it feels much stiffer in the BB, no chain rub at all. I will probably do a better job of sanding and painting this winter, I thought any problems with the joint would be more apparent with it painted, so it was just a quick rattle can touch-up. Before and after pics of the repair area and a couple of the whole bike.

Very nice looking bike. I had forgotten what the white framed Premis looked like.

'88 Schwinn Premis

Frame was repainted grass green and beige epoxy (used to be the blue/mauve/purple combo and badly scratched!). Stem and seatpost to match.

Components are '90s 105 and RX100 stuff. Wheels are new Alex R390 rims and vintage Campy Record 28h hubs.

i guess this bike belongs in here. a little too large me, i got it for the best price though. changed the dave scott aero bars to some crit. bars which required me to use the only cinelli stem i had, , a track stem. i don't like the 175mm cranks either.

Okay, after much debate, I snuck into work to download these. If I get fired, I'm blaming it on the lot of you...

Here's my 1967 PX10 alongside my recently completed 1971 Schwinn Paramount, which some of you may find offensive, so you can close your eyes. These two are absolutely amazing rides, and the PX is an unrestored patina type beauty. Individual posts on each bike to follow.

Here's the PX. It is completely stock and unrestored... I think in auto circles this would be called a "survivor". I have never seen another one this early (or later, for that matter) in anything approaching this shape. Standard set up; Stronglight/Mafac/Normandy/Simplex. I include a picture of the rear mech because I'm pretty certainl few of you have seen one from this vintage in this kind of shape. Actually shifts better than the Nuovo Record I have of the same vintage, although they're not in this kind of shape, either. I included pictures of the ad-hoc pump; the week after I bought this bike, one of these pumps sold for almost as much as I paid for the bike on ebuy... dig the old Simplex shifters as well...

Okay, this one may be a little more bothersome for some of you; I know these bikes are held in very high regard by more than one of you, and some feel they should be nothing but stock. I got the bike from a fellow forum member a good while ago (hi luker-- bet you were wondering what dark hole this bike fell down) and spent a while gathering parts as they came to me. You can avert you eyes if you want, and certainly don't read the next couple statements.

I decided early on, being the scavenger I am, that I'd put what I could find on that bike, with one major proviso: any part I stuck on it had to as good or better than the original. In addition, it was staying friction shifting; no "modern" upgrades. The end result is this:

Bar and stem: Cinelli
Brakes and levers: Campy Long reach
Headset: Campy record
Crank: Campy Super Record
Derailleurs: Campy Super Record
Shifters: Simplex Retrofriction
Pedals: Lyotard Berthet
Seatpost: Campy
Saddle: Wright's
Wheelset: Phil Wood laced to Wobler Champion tubular rims

Admittedly, not all period, but even the most fanatical Schwinnie must admit, a fairly repectfull build. IMO, the pedals, shifters (especially) and the hubs are upgrades, though you may debate it if you wish. I'm not changing them...

The bike is a repaint; it is full chrome under that black. But I liked the combination of the black and chrome more than I would like the chrome, and it is a professional job, so I kept it. After some debate, I decided I liked the bike naked of decals as well, so while it is in my possesion (should be awhile, it's a great ride and no one pays attention to my ride partners Waterford when I ride it, which is worth the price... they don't pay attention to her bike when I ride the PX, either) it will stay that way...
