Here are some pics of a '89 Schwinn Alure that I picked up at a yard sale a while ago...It has gotten a pretty good make-over
I shaved off two cable stops on the down tube and left one for the rear brake. Also shaved off the cable stop on the drive side chain stay. Shaved off all rack mounts from the fork and drop-outs. Completely stripped and sanded the frame before repainting it House of Kolors Kandy Lime Gold, with HOK Pearl White on the lugs. Sanded down all the zig-zag gouges on the seatpost. Shined up the stem and handle bars, as well as the rims and hubs. I planned on getting a new single speed crank but ended up using the original one...after some minor modifications. Also kept the original freewheel, again after some minor mods. I think the cranks were the worst part as they were coated with some unbelievably tough plastic crap...Anywho...here's some pics...
Here it is when I first bought it...$7 bucks at a yard sale...
