New: Take Part in the June Giveaway to Win the Kazam Buddi 20" Aluminum Trailer Bike


Schwinn world tourist single speed conversion
#1
I inherited an old Schwinn world tourist from my father who has since passed away. Decided to fix it up and make it a little more me. It was completely stock when I bought it. Pretty happy with how it turned out.

Upgrades:
Single speed conversion 44x17
Tektro 559 brakes with Kool stop pads and 750 levers.
Swift Sand canyon 27x 1 3/8 tires
Flat bars with vans grips
Charge seat

Such a noble commuter bike.

And it's in such good condition, I feel the like-new euphoria that would have been had back then.
