Mine came with Suntour XC Sport 3 X 6 friction shift. I swapped those out for 1986 XC Sport 3 X 6 Accushift. The saddle and seatpost are not original but the stem, bars, brakes and wheels are. It has a Suntour roller cam brake on the back.

Yeah, and it's super cool. The more I see stuff from Black Mountain Cycles, the more I think about making room for one.

Thanks! I recommend them with 100% enthusiasm. If you choose to buy one, you will also be supporting a one man operation with quality product and service.

I just finished up this 1968 schwinn. Took the green paint off and replace with green powder.
