I bought this Super Sport about 2 years ago. It was a nice bike to start,but was missing some of its original parts like seat, rear sprocket and spoke guard and rear derailleur. The last piece of the puzzle finally came together recently when I was able to get the burgundy handlebar tape from Ozzynut2. Everything on the bike is now correct except for the redline tires. These have always been one of my favorite Schwinn models. The Super Sport light on the bike was bought new by me in `71. I had to mow a lot of lawns to get it!

Nice bike! I've got a 72 Super Sport that I've had for over 35 years. It's the bike I've ridden more than any others I've had all those years. I rode it going to college and my son took it with him when he was in college. It's not in near as great a shape as yours though.
