    I have been enjoying this website….I’m trying to find a 1976 23″ Schwinn Super le tour 12.2 like I had in 1976-1980. I know the value of these bikes, but would pay a premium if mine turned up somewhere.

    It was a 1976 silver mist SLT 12.2 with Modolo brakes, a 46 or 48 tooth inner chainring, brooks leather saddle, gold chain and gold corncob cluster, and bar-end shifters with the reflectors and chainguard removed. Also, the bill of sale from Atkins Schwinn Cyclery with my name on it would be rolled up and stuffed in the handlebar.

    Let me know if you see one…..but mine is probably burning in Fixie Hell.
