    I know Schwinn's from the late 60's on up to mid 80's very well. I was chief mechanic and bottle washer for 10th largest Schwinn franchise dealership in the country.

    Laptop Screen

    $250 to $300 if you bring in in for repair here in Chicago area. If you have a few tech skills and a little patience you can replace it yourself for about a $100 bucks for an exact new replacement screen. Bought mine from a joint in Texas. Search online. You only have to disassemble the...

    Seein' I'm the one that started this thread i'd like to reply. I agree with you. Lots of bad drivers out there. Many of them are guilty of doing the same distraction causing activities as these pedestrians and bicyclists. Add that in with other bad driving habits and you better be on your...

    Not me pal, maybe you. I live and teach common sense and street smarts above all else.

    Yeah, I especially love it when people just wander nilly/willy down the driving aisles of the local grocery store/mall parking lots with their toddlers in tow teaching them to be future generations of mindless morons.

    I saw it all today when I took my sports car out for a spin. Spotted an extremely safety concerned bicyclist/yuppie/new age knucklehead wearing a Bell bicycle helmet, cycling gloves, etc. etc. TEXTING while riding her bicycle down a main street in an extremely yuppified area in richie...

    I'm very concerned about the fact that most of the time when there's a vehicle vs. pedestrian or bicyclist issue, it's usually found to be the motor vehicle drivers fault. I am, and have always have been an extremely cautious driver. I've always looked out for the idiots both behind the...

    Indian Motocycles Return - Again

    Just like many other things in society today, they are way overpriced. We can all thank the Yuppies back in the 1990's for jackin' the prices on Harley's, handbags, and work boots when the me generation thought they were all stylish. Now we all pay full boat for them.

    Read a report recently that shows that pedestrian death rates have increased for the first time in over a decade by nearly 10 percent. Doesn't surprise me in the least. People walking around constantly texting, ipoding, phoning. Even Yuppie moms texting while pushing strollers with babies...

    Restoring a bike for my girlfriend.

    Yes, it was called a Lemon Peeler. Schwinn also made a white one called a Cotton Picker and a silver/grey metallic one called the Grey Ghost. Both of these colors are more rare.

    Bike guys, 1972 Chrome Paramount NFSD

    I worked for the largest Schwinn dealer in town when I was younger. Every year or two I would get myself a new ride. Went from a 5 speed Collegiate Sport to a 10 speed Continental. I then progressed to a Super Sport, a Sports Tourer, a Super LeTour, an all chrome Voyager and finally;
