Happy Monday! Here is Craig C’s 1986 Schwinn Sprint
1986 Schwinn Sprint
This is the bike I bought new in 1986 to take with me to Indiana University. I recall my first year on campus and carrying my bike to my third floor dormitory each night. I was not about to leave it outside any more than I had to.
A few months ago I pulled it from garage and put new wheels, tires, SKS fenders and a brooks saddle on my old sprint. I still have the original rear rack and recently have taken to throwing my laptop and a few clothing items in panniers and commuted to my office (30 mile round trip). A buddy tried to talk me into a new Surly LHT but I am enjoying the pleasure of riding on my old bike and the uniqueness of many memories.
