It has been suggested by a loyal reader/contributer that I declare June Schwinn Month. I’m not sure about the whole month, but I am going to finish this week with ALL SCHWINNS. Now I expect all you non-Schwinn owners to come out and represent yourselves in July.
Today’s Schwinn adds yet another hue to the rainbow of fruit flavor we have begun to amass with all these Schwinn entries. This Le Tour III, sent in by John of OTiS the Omega fame, mixes old and new very nicely. Some chrome cable clamps on that top tube would be icing on the cake.
Rescued this Le Tour 3 from a decade of neglect. Tore it all apart and added aero brakes, a Felt brand racing saddle and a leftover crank from a Peugeot. Very responsive bike and for it’s age, it is very light weight. This one is named Bob in order to properly honor the winner of last months competition. I see that there were 2 winners but trying to ride that gorgeous Suteki with no pedals is a trick that even I could not pull off.
