27inch Schwinn LeTour III

I bought this bike because of the beautiful paint.

The candy tangerine is just awesome. Even though it is a 1978 it looks like it was stored in a garage after its first 1 block ride. At some point the original drop bars were replaced with some riser MTB bars that are quite comfortable. I installed new tires and a green brooks b17. The streched out cockpit fits my longer torso perfectly, but the high standover is just a wee bit to tall. It is not a bike that I would ride on a century, but it is a great down-to-the-mailbox bike. Besides the paint, my favorite part is the kickstand.
