Here’s another beauty sent in by another Ryan, this time it’s Ryan H. and this is his 1977 Schwinn Le Tour II mixte.
Have a great weekend.
First, thanks for giving all of us old ten speed lovers a place to post these old beauts. I’d like to submit this to the gallery
Schwinn Le Tour II
It was rescued from a garage sale in the Rocky Mountains outside Denver. When I got it, everything was corroded, rusted, or missing. I cleaned and polished all of the metal, flushed, installed new ball bearings and repacked all bearings, new cables, housing, tires, tubes, saddle. Replaced the rear derailer and installed toe clips. I tried to make it appropriate to the 70’s era ten speed while making it perfectly functional for another 40 years.
