Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Schwinn Le tour

Can I please have some help identifying my Schwinn Le tour I just inherited it and am trying to restore it so far I know it's a Taiwanese model but I can't figure the exact year. I'd like to get new wheels and rotating assembly as well any advice welcome. Thank you

You may get better answers in the "classic and vintage" forum. Any way you can post a pic or give more details?

Post it in classic and vintage and you'll find out everything you want to know and more. Depending on the age it could be better or worse.
