Couldn't resist. I can smell the Schwinn Shop I worked at in 1982 whenever I see this bicycle. Real pictures to follow.

1982 Schwinn Super Sport SP in Champagne. GREAT condition. Racks and all..Real pics coming

Sounds like a pretty nice tourer if it can take you all the way back to 1982.

Nice catch! 26 pounds with racks and water bottles is pretty decent for an '82 touring bike.

I have to weigh it..im thinking 28 with racks. it feels fairly heavy.

I love the way the front rack mounts to the fork crown!

Kind of groovy bar tape; the front rack is, well, different. Nice bike; I like it.

Cool. My main rider this summer has been an 81 Super Sport. It is a great all rounder. The only disappointment with mine is it did not come to me with the racks.

The groovy bar tap and bars are going to be changed..probably a longer stem too... I hope I never ruin the front rack. I will never find one to fit those braze ons again!

I had one of these before from the same year, but in blue. Even though it had a short top tube for the size, it was the 25" frame and it was too big. Great sport-touring bike, the racks are awesome, and it was nice that they came stock with 700c wheels.

Nice score. I have never seen one of these.
Depending on what you want to carry and where you want to ride, I think the racks are cool.
Yes, lift the entire assembly off the front and perhaps replace with Nitto noodle, 100mm stem and upgraded but silver levers?
Then different/nicer 32 tires of course. .
The chain rings are too large for my loaded touring bike liking.

I would also agree that this is a fairly unique and cool feature.

Also, love the Aero water bottle! I bet the way that bottle slices through the air makes 26 pounds feel like a frame not an ounce over 25 pounds!

Really though. Nice score.

Thanks, I was shocked that it came with that bottle stock. I was told that it was ridden for a year and put away. Looking at the bicycle Id have to say that was true.
