I saw this bike at the bike co op last January. It is a very idiotic singlespeed conversion. Someone just dumped it there instead of properly donating it. I did not know what bike it was at the time, all I knew was that it was a Schwinn. It was sitting behind a 1980s era mountain bike that looked like it had been hit by a truck. I thought it was sold, until I saw it again last March. Someone was removing the wheels to resale. I examined it, and I realized that it was a Traveler. After some research, I found out that it was a 1983 Traveler. When I was volunteering at the bike co op last Wednesday, I found this bike sitting in a pile with other parted out bikes. Everything except the tires and the wheels were there. I pulled it out and started to strip off the parts I did not need. I removed the Cranks Handlebars Braking system Reflector Chain Seat Seatclamp Seat Crank bolts I kept the Forte pedals and strapped them to the seatpost. I picked the bike up last Sunday. When I got home, I overhauled the headset, installed a new seat, installed a new seatclamp, put grease on everything that needs it, put on some new handlebars, and installed a shorter stem. I also put the new crank bolts on the bottom bracket spindle so they don't get lost. Here is what it looks like now. Here is the rest of the parts that I will be using. Shimano 5 speed freewheel Forte pedals Sugino chainring I am planning to make it a bike with a 1x5 drivetrain. I have some singlespeed chainring bolts for it as well. I will also replace the fork because the fork that is on the bike now it too rusted out for me to feel safe. There is not much rust on the frame. I am calling this bike Big Schwinn. It is a 64cm frame. Here is Little Schwinn! I got the brakes all wired up! I need to replace the seatpost because the stock one is to short. I am planning on using one of these https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/us/en/brand-x-inline-6061-seatpost/rp-prod120294.
