Schwinn Premis.
New brake cable guides brazed on, then powdercoated, and modernized with 11sp shifting and an innicycle headset.

Another Tenax Schwinn back in my garage. Found a 1987 Super Sport in my size and in the amazing magenta/white paint job. It is an early build(357th day of 1986), and oddly it has the non-aero Shimano 600 brake levers. I think they are stock because they are the original magenta brake cable housings at the correct length for a non-aero setup. This color is gorgeous! The magenta and white are non-metallic.

Reliving my youth collecting/riding/wrenching on classic and vintage bikes.

This 25Ē Sprint frame is from 1985 or 1986, as far as I can tell from catalog scans. I got it about four years ago for my son, but it turned out to be too tall for him, even though he is taller than me.

Anyway, I put most of the Sprintís parts on a 23Ē LeTour frame that he still rides.

Meanwhile, the Sprint has inherited some of my nice road bike parts from the late 70s along with some new parts. I posted pics a couple of weeks ago in the inquisition thread, but last weekend I found that the adjustable stem had a stripped bolt hole and so I replaced it with a Technomics stem and while I was at it I switched back to down tube shifters.

So itís looking a bit more C&V than it did a few weeks ago. And sporting generally much better components than the Sprint had originally.
