    the latest..87 Schwinn High Sierra

    Literally just picked this up nice C/L find hours ago, it was pretty much complete less tires, tubes and seat. I gave it a quick wash, added the above parts, gave it a quick lube and rode it around the block. Needs a chain and new cables (don't all used bikes?)., derusting /replacing the headset, seatpost binder, misc. bolts and a thorough cleaning/ waxing. All original except parts I added, the grips and the rear wheel. The Black Chrome finish looks like it should clean up nicely. Not a real high ender but a fine quality bike any way you look at it.

    It fits you!


    Stan...would it be too much to ask to get a group photo of all the bikes you own all lined up?
    I think we're all quite curious at this point.

    10 bux!! I saw this sitting on CL for a few days. Pretty tempting, but I don't have space for more bikes. Apparently not an issue for OP.

    Who said I have room? And yeah Rumpfy, $10.00 bucks maes it another cheap bike.

    "Wow. Even aluminum stems rust up there in SEEaddle."

    It's faded anodizing goofhead! at least I hope so

    "Exactly what do you do with all these bikes?"

    OK, you got me, I actually don't have any bikes. I just steal pictures of other peoples and pretend they are mine

    Seattle-05/14

    Sunrise at 5:32 AM in direction 60 Northeast by east
    Sunset at 8:40 PM in direction 300 Northwest by west
    Duration of day: 15 hours, 7 minutes (2 minutes, 33 seconds longer than yesterday)

    Maybe a better excuse is that you don't have a panoramic feature to your camera

    multiple pics of the line up will suffice.

    (did i use that right?)

    regardless

    stan, your bikes please?
