This is for you BRQ. Mike D. has contributed quite a few bikes to the OTSG over the past couple years, but none quite as yellow as this 1972 Schwinn Continental.
Haven’t sent you anything in a while – but here is my latest project. This Continental was completely torn down and overhauled. This thing is almost as heavy as my Miata, but it sure does ride smooooooth. I bought it from the original owner who hadn’t ridden it in 30 years. Love the Kool Lemon color! Truly a classic look in my eyes. This was the bike that I lusted over in my very early teens. I mean after all, it had quick release hubs and center pulls – how cool was that??? As always, love the site and seeing the old machines that will still be around in another 40 years!
