    HELP! Just found this site. Never subbed to an RSS feed/site before so don’t know what I’m doing. I need to buy a couple of bikes. I love the Peugeots that are shown on this site. Are they both still for sale? My husband and I both need bikes now.
    Can someone please email me and tell me how to navigate this site?
    I’ve had a run of really rotten luck of late. Seems lack of jobs or just plain laziness has led to certain individuals to engage in a life of crime. So far this month I’ve lost, in no certain order as all were well loved and/or used- my TREK 1000, my Tohatsu 9.9 OBM that I used to fish out on the Myakka River down in Florida-and my brand new Blackberry Curve cell phone. To date I’ve had over $3800 worth of stuff stolen from me and I”m just heartsick. I love to fish and I have to bike to get my heart back in shape. So if you call could tell me how to go about buying a bike off this site I’d really love to have an old or new bike from someone who really cherished it. (and if someone also has an older used outboard motor I’m needing one of those too!!) Thanks so much and God Bless You for creating such a great site-whoever you are!!!

      Check the for sale section on here there is some stuff. Also check your local craigslist at http://www.craigslist.com i have found many many bikes on there cheap. You may also find your outboard motor there.

    Nice bike!! I’ve had my ’77 Varsity since ’92, and recently restored it.
    The magic setup on mine was a set of aluminum Weinmanns rims, Atom 440 pedals, aluminum stem & touring bars from a Continental and a newer Schwinn seat. By the way, I hope that’s an extended stem because compared to mine that one’s waaay up in the breakage danger zone 😉

      Where did you find those alluminum wheels i really want some but cant find any in the correct size do i need to look for something different than 27X1-1/4. Maybe a different size that still works. Please give me a site if you have one and price if possible.

        27in Alloys. I’ve been happy with these guys.

        Parted out a junker I picked up at a yard sale. Odd to find alloys on a garage sale special, but there ya go. It was about a ’90 or so Schwinn. Keep looking for some 27’s and they’ll come. I see sets on craigslist all the time.

    I had one of these, got it for my birthday in ’71 or ’72. Had the orange color – very 70’s. Loved it until it was stolen from outside our church! Figured someone earned some bad karma that day…

    Great to see it’s Varsity brethren here!

    A month ago I restored a ’72 Schwinn Varsity that I got for $20 at Goodwill. I love the bike so much that now I am going to ride it 65 miles in the Tour De Cure on 7-25-09. The Tour benefits the American Diabetes Association. I’d love it if I could get a few more contributions. If you donate online, you get a tax reciept automatically!
