Mark from Long Island is back again, and this time he’s not messing around. His last offering was very nicely repurposed Bianchi Sprint which still to this day is the only OTS on here with Campy components. I love your Bianchi Mark, but Campy is a little high brow for the OTSG.:) This time, Mark took it up a notch (down several notches if we based it solely on seat height) with this Schwinn Caliente complete with a seatstay marring rear rack, foam grips and covetous white cable housings. This Caliente also sports a textbook BOS, but I have a feeling that Mark may have completely disregarded the maximum insertion mark simply for our enjoyment. Thanks Mark.
Here is a 1980’s era Schwinn Caliente. I found this for sale outside someone’s house for $35 in almost mint condition. It comes complete with stem mounted shifters, Shimano Tourney derailleurs, foam handlebar grips, and suicide levers. It has recently been given Northend bars and new brake levers for my girlfriend. I dont think bikes get more ten speed than this one.
