A glorious 40 lbs in standard trim. I can't imagine how many of those were sold in the 70's. Definitely need to score that and forget the EVO. Everyone's going to have one next season:-)

I'm actually in the middle of restoring a yellow one for my uncle. They are great bikes! US made in Chicago, sexy high flange hubs, etc... Definitely doesn't have the same performance as current generation bikes, but I still think they are pretty rad.

My first 10 spd was a World Traveler, in a green of the era that was fairly close to the Liquigas green! What goes around comes around.

If your budget can stretch that far, go for the Schwinn Continental over the Varsity.

I spent plent of miles on my 1973 Schwinn Continental. Very fond memories since I grew up in Chicago not real far from the Schwinnn plant on Kostner. My oldest daughter still commutes on a 1972 Schwinn Collegiate to UCSF medical school on a daily basis.

Go for the Schwinn !

You should do a time trial up OLH with both and compare times.

Excellent idea! Twenty iterations, double-blind, ANOVA.
