'71 Schwinn Rasity...

It started as a dirty ol 71 varsity:



then it went down to nuthing...



then it got all purdy...



and then - it got all "rasity"...



so it was a year of changes for my 71 Varsity (ahem "Rasity") - and now its complete - 26 MTB up front - 27 bloodhound knobby in the back - one brake in the rear and a rastafied rack too

great for trails, road - whatever

haha - yeah mon

glad you like the bike
this bike has some special meaning for me - its a 71 - which is my birth year
and it was first real jump into learning how to wrench my own bikes
i learned alot on this bike which ironically is a perfect bike to learn on

btw - the rest of the marley fleet:
