Dustin G. acquired this 1979 Schwinn Le Tour for the everyday low price of someone else’s bass guitar. Dustin, I’m just curious why you didn’t just pay him the $10 and hock the bass to pay for the parts and rehab?
After fixing up a mountain bike for my friend he told me about a bike frame he thought might be in the back of his mom’s garage. He had originally offered to sell it to me for $10 as it ‘needed a lot of work’. However I have a bass guitar someone had left at my house after a party so I traded him that.
When he brought it over to my house it was just the frame,wheels, and handle bars. After a few weeks of shopping around for some parts it’s back in working order.
