    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.

    I have my personal bought new Peugeot PX-10 from about 1969 hanging on my “vehicles” shop wall as a souvenir of my youthful riding days. (I have “Vehicles” in the form of bicycles, cars, trucks, a custom Cabin Cruiser I am refitting, and two airplanes…as well as an Electric Drive MGTD fiberglass replica on a VW chassis and a Motorhome)….all less than a few $K when purchased. Photos at (Electric Recreating Vehicles 1).
    Since the 70’s I have had MTB’s, Beach Cruisers, A Fat Tire bike and a custom, stretched, semi recumbent, chair height, feet forward, e-bike…my first e-bike. Purists will say “stuff”,against e-bikes, but I <3 it and the aid to momentum can be seamlessly applied…plus, it goes well with my electric car and "determined alternative technology lifestyle" developments. (Retired aerospace production tooling equipment design Senior Engineer IV with McDonnell Douglas/Boeing for almost 30 years. You know I can't keep my hands out of technology!).
    So I wanted to get something from that late 60's early 70's era to ride again….occasionally….and, I found this Kabuki Super Light and then I found this site…in which a contributor posted a photo of a spittin' image of the bike I just acquired at a St.Vincent DePaul Charity thrift shop for $45… Sure enough it is from the 1970's. And while this site appears to have not been updated for years….the Comments section is still operable! So thanks for putting up this site, and Thanks for the Kabuki owner who posted photos of his OTS bike. And "Howdy" to all the other OTS bike lovers out there!! Keep puffin'!!
