    Great color and a nice example of a Varsity with down tube shifters.

    Nice work, Chris!
    1966! It seems like nothing else in this world has the enduring ability to literally survive decades of neglect, to reward it’s new owner after an inexpensive application of TLC returning it to it’s original enjoyable purpose, like a purely simple OTS Schwinn!
    I guess that’s why we like them so much!
    The lack of “safety levers” and chainring guard, along with the downtube shifters, remind us of a better time before heartless lawyers invaded every aspect of life.
