1987 Schwinn Super Sport.

This may be the nicest condition 20 year old bike I have ever seen. Tons of absolutely original components from the Shimano 600 line. This beauty is Colombus Tenax tubing and the lugs are gorgeous. The Italian influences don't stop there with Cinelli 64-40 bar and 120mm stem. French Rigida rims, SX100, in black heat treated that show almost no brake wear, I love Arizona bikes! This is my tendonitis special for the Jan Ullrich diesel types, geared with a 55X16 if you get these 170mm cranks up to 100 rpm you will be flying. Owner will get to select gearing, alternate chainring is 44T with choice of rear cogs (15,16 or 17). You can really enjoy muscle building workouts with this huge gear, just make sure you have some bags of peas ready in the freezer. The bike is a 58cm c-t of top tube with a 56cm top tube. Non-original components include Tioga brake lever covers, ProLite titanium railed saddle, and new S60-K kevlar tires 700x23. I have a complete Shimano 600 Retro kit for the bike as well, with original derailleurs, shift levers, Bio-pace double chainrings. The new owner of this ride will get a limited edition Brazen Cycleworks polo with purchase, S,L and XL available.
