Sunday score: Schwinn World Sport '84

Fresh off CL, just picked up. A World Sport in blue.

G0884 serial—by Giant, Taiwan, i believe.
Seem mostly original—4130 Chromo frame, 12spd: Suntour Perfect 6spd freewheel + Sugino double crank, Suntour AR mechs + Stem shift, SR Custom stem, Champion bar, Schwinn "Approved" Dia-Compe Brakes + QR levers, etc etc.

Wheels: Sansin hubs + Belgium made Weinmann alloy rims. most o' old Schwinns in this level i've seen usually had chromed steel wheels? or i may be wrong.

It's from the original owner, in a decent shape. Incredibly not rusty at all.
Deflated, but nearly new tires. bike seems well cared.
The best part? guess 50 clams is not a bad deal at all.

Basically, this will serve as a good donor to my current build.
27" wheelset is perfect and a few more parts will totally fulfill all the demands.
Most of all, really good live example of how to wire the cables!!!

I know it's not a fancy bike, nothing to write home about it, thought i'd share it anyway here.



ps: will part out and put 'em on a bargain after the build. frame seems 58cm c-c ST, fyi.

Those are probably the stock rims. My '85 World Sport had aluminum Arayas. It also had the same exact derailleur except it was frame mounted. The crankset did not have the integral pants guard and the stem shifters were offset so the levers did not protrude much behind the stem even when down. It was a pretty good bike.

If I got one in nearly new shape like that, I would just ride it, but that's just me.

yup, i dug around and figured it's all original. like it.
and yes. i am actually on the fence now. it wouldn't feel nice to part such a nicely kept bike out...
