As I mentioned in some Tweets last week, I spent this past weekend bike touring south central Wisconsin. I had planned to post this OTS from my phone while on the road, but alas! technology failed me and I had to put it off until today. This is a 1980 Schwinn Traveler sent in by Dave O.
I am the newest owner of a well preserved Schwinn Traveler 12-speed, circa 1980. I do not know the exact year, but the previous owner said he bought it around that time. The frame was well cared for and only has a few scratches. The previous owner had not ridden it in years and gave it away for free. All I had to do to get it back on the road was replace the rear wheel (original was unrepairable), tune the gears, pump the tires, and add lights and fenders. It now lives on as a foul weather town bike.
Features of note: Steel pie plate, fail-safe clip mechanism on front wheel quick release, original foam grips, original tool kit. The badge reads “Schwinn – Chicago”.
