Steve S. is living a dream with this Schwinn Le Tour III. I love this color! Hey all you Schweads©, what is this orange called again?
Hey, check out my childhood dream! When I was a kid a buddy of mine got a Schwinn Le Tour, in orange, and I thought it was the coolest thing since sliced bread! Recently I started looking for one but it had to be orange. I found several but they were either not in great shape, or had been altered in one way or another. I came across this one and couldn’t believe it!! ALL original, the seat, pedals, handlebars AND tape, I’m not positive but I think even the tires?! And it’s in fantastic shape! I’d like to make it pristine, you know, polish all the little parts, nooks and crannies, but I’m afraid to completely strip it and not be able to find the correct cables and housing, and handlebar tape. Any suggestions on where I might find the correct parts? Nothing else needs replaced, just cleaned and polished, a labor of love . . .
P.S. The dust cover on the non-drive side crank arm is the only piece missing, any suggestions…?
