This is my 1983 Schwinn Traveler, that was given to me by a relative. I stripped it down to the frame, and repacked all of the bearings, installed some take off bullhorns $15, a Shimano BMX freewheel $25 (it is 40x16 now), one tire tube $5, and some white Velox cloth bar tape (not installed yet) $8. The tires where donated by friends. The seat came out of a junk box at my local bike shop $0. I actually like the way the seat clashes with the bike. Its comfy too. I put some different wheels on it that I had laying around, and sold the origonal front wheel for $25. This is the cheapest bike I have ever owned, and my first single speed, and I love it. It gets more miles then my $$$$ geared bike gets now. I generally ride in the city, and trails. Usually no more then 60 miles a day, two or three days a week, "steel is real". The picture of the bike setting on a bucket is from one of my favorite watering holes, and the other two are with the Des Moines River in the background.
