A couple winter projects finished!

Here are a couple oddballs.

1 is a 1977 Schwinn "Sierra" sold right here in Albuquerque. According to the PO, it has been mostly stored since new and it looks it. From what I've read, the Sierra was a one year only 10spd road bike replacement for the Continental.

This one has a cruiser bar setup that was original according to the PO, I like it. 24 in frame with a 33in standover height, just about my size!







2 is a Takara 12spd with a whopping 27in frame, standover height is 37 inches! I can ride it at 6'5, but it's too big in reality. Interesting Shimano "Selecta" crankset and freewheel which has the bearing cup in the freewheel!






Thanks for looking!
