Hello from Arizona

Hello from Arizona

My neighbor across the street recently left a 1984 or 85 Schwinn super LaTorra all original on the street for trash pick up. I stop my car and backed up and remember days of riding in the mid to late 80s, and my old benotto. So I asked him if it would be OK if I just take it he said it was fine. Over the past month or so of trying to make them replace the bottom bracket cleaned up the bearings and the headset.

Anyways I'm excited about the process and look forward to chatting with some of you!

Welcome to Bike Forums. The folks in the Classic & Vintage forum will soon be your best friends. Have fun.
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. - Psalm 103:8

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.

Wow he was going to THROW that away??

Another person's junk is another person's treasure.
"Foolish, selfish people are always thinking of themselves and the result is always negative. Wise persons think of others, helping them as much as they can and the result is happiness. Love and compassion are beneficial both to you and others. Through your kindness to others, your mind and heart will open to peace. " ~ Dalai Lama
