Schwinn World Sport
Last fall I was looking to purchase a bike only to discover they are sooooo expensive! I found this beauty in the dumpster where I live. It was pretty dirty, and the bearings weren’t working that well. Also it was missing a front wheel. So I took it upon myself to learn and fix this bike I found. I found the wheel on another schwinn bike I bought for parts. I took everything apart and degreased and cleaned almost every part. Polished the chrome and the frame of the bike as well. Quick note, the tin foil and water trick worked awesome! New tires for the wheels, brake pads,chain, handle bar tape were added, as well as new cable and housing. New bearings were also added in the wheel hubs, and the crank and stem were repacked with new grease! Overall, I probably spent more than I wanted to on parts and tools but was well worth it! I wasn’t excited about the stem shifters, but after riding this awesome bike on the trails in Minneapolis and central Minnesota I have grown to really like them! Thank You and Enjoy!
