I rescued this Schwinn Varsity 10 speed, circa. 1980, from the Recycling center a number of years ago. It is finally restored! I took it all apart and did all the bearings and much more. Looks great!

    This brings back memories of my first new bike as a child which was a Schwinn that looked similar to the one in your picture and I loved it. The bike that I had before this was used and fused together... it literally broke in two pieces while I was riding it and I flew over the handle bars...Of all good places for it to fall apart was in front of a dumping ground on a country dirt road...So I threw the two pieces into the dump and limped home scraped up and bleeding...My folk's then decided to buy me a new Schwinn...the bike of my dreams...That came to a bad end also several years later as the tractor shed where it was was parked on our property fell down in a wind storm and the Schwinn bike got smashed beyond repair. You got my vote...Great entry and please excuse my long story.
