Two 10-Speed Weekend Special:Â The first is a 1974 Schwinn Continental in a brown not too often seen on bikes these days. The second is a rattle-can-black* Huffy cruiser. This special two 10-speed weekend is brought to you by Dave M.
I bought this bike from a friend of a friend for $15.00. It appears to be all original , except the tires. The 23″ frame is a little too tall for me so I don’t ride it much, but it’s only one of a garage full of old ten speeds that I ride a lot. The bike is a 1974 Schwinn Continental in almost mint condition. All parts are standard Schwinn approved, with the usual Continental upgrades. I love your site, keep,up the good work. Look for more pics in the future.
I bought this old Huffy for $2.00 at a yard sale. The bike was rusty and pretty much worn out, but it had really shiny fenders. The worn out french stuff was replaced with some recycled Shimano (Thunderbird front & Eagle rear) derailleurs. The brake levers are new, $2.00 at a yard sale.Â Also replaced the cables, cable housings and tires. I have the original seat but replaced it with this white Messenger seat cause I liked it. I know I violated rule 3 by painting it with spray cans (original color was gold) but there was just too little paint remaining.Â The Mitsuba generator and headlight came off another $5.00 yard sale bike.Â Total invested is about $45.00. The bike runs great, I put a lot of miles on it this summer
