You need to quit while you're ahead.

that is a RIGHTEOUS score! good for you!! is it a 56 or a 58?? No idea what the frame is but its a quality race bike for sure. ya done good

Possibly a repainted 88 or so Schwinn Circuit?? Hard to see much in the photos so far...

EDIT: ok upon further scrutiny... def not a circuit not a 88 anyhow, mine doesnt have columbus stamped on the drop out OR extra braze on for rack... whatever it is, the Sante group alone would bring 4 or 5 times that much on ebay if its in cherry shape.

See, now you are perpetuating the very thing that compels us to seek treasure amidst the junk.

Nice one...I hit the sales myself this morning but struck out. Old bikes seem to be getting harder and harder to come by. Congrats.

Yep, garage sales continue to be the best source price wise. It helps if you are looking for other stuff as well. Otherwise, the long dry spells in finding bikes will talk you out of going to garage sales.
