I’m going to spend this week clearing out the bottom of my inbox. This doesn’t mean it’s not good stuff, it is, it’s just been skipped for put off for while, and for really no good reason at all.
This is first time submitter, Gabe S’s a 1987 Schwinn Le Tour. I like the white saddle/wrap combo, but you miss the Euro Pro look with that seat bag! Loose the seat bag and always wear matching white Sidis if you going this route.
My name is Gabe S and this is my 1987 Schwinn Le Tour.
I found this beauty at a local bike shop, it had been neglected for years and “spiffed up” and traded for a new bike. I had been looking for a project bike and this guy fit the bill so I took it home and replaced the bar tape and put an old seat of mine on just to get it on the road. Well I feel in love with the ride immediately and began to ride the Le Tour more than my modern bike.
I have set about restoring this great bike with full Shimano 600 components and lots of love. The bike is currently striped to the bare frame to be painted and I hope to have it all together and going by the spring.
I love this bike and can not wait to enjoy many more miles with it.
