    87? Schwinn Sierra

    87? Schwinn Sierra-1987-schwinn-sierra.jpg

    Picked up this bike several years ago and just now decided to keep it at work and use it as my lunch hour exercise program. I work less than a mile from the greenbelt/multi use path in Scottsdale AZ. Replaced the dry-rotted 1.75 commuter/trail tires with these 2.0 ThickSlicks just last night and pretty please with it at the moment. I want to replace the seat with an older looking unit and replace the OE grips with something more modern.
    I need to ride more...

    Nice ride. I sold a bunch of those when I worked for a Schwinn dealer in the late 80's. That black chrome finish was more durable than he other option that year, which was red paint. The black chrome finish cost about $10 more than the red. The OEM wide Viscount saddle was pretty uncomfortable.

    I can fully support having a VRC work bike. I have one too, & itís great for taking a break, especially when the weather is good!
