Josh, the owner of this 1974 Schwinn Varsity, wins this month’s award for most enthusiastic entrant.Â Two submissions and follow-up email made it clear to me, this guy loves his bike!Â Rightfully so, as you can see.Â Â Only a couple observations: 1) I’m hoping Josh went ahead and got some wrap on those bare naked bars—we all know unwrapped bars are one hacksaw and an illconcieved notion from a flop-n-chop fate.Â 2) I’m not sure where Josh goes to school, but I would recommend a bit more meat with respect to he’s theft prevention measure.Â Just ask Ben.Â 3)One may choose to accessorize their OTS as they see fit 1 2 3 4, but I find that water bottle choice a bit too space-age for such fine 70s specimen.
I bought this Schwinn for twenty bucks brought it home it was covered in rust, the tires were obsolete, and cables rusted through. After hours of work and lots of grease I have a smooth riding commuter bike. I greased bearings in both wheels, the front end, and bottom bracket also replaced the tires, and the cables. In the future I plan a new saddle new pedals and maybe a wheel upgrade.
