This is the final product.A ”vintage bike with a modern look” :))after lots of polishing , tunning, greasing etc.New parts: Saddle, Saddle post,Brake levers, handle bar tape, tires, inner tubes..and the bottle:) Bike frame was a little bended( the forks) I had to streighten it too. The front deraileur cable was missing, I replace with new one. I changed the ball bearings on the front wheel. And I changed the pedals with some older Shimano Ultegra I had in house, since the original were stuck.
Bike was bough from Internet in a pour condition, was 100 Euros/ 120 Euros ( with shiping). Parts I put were another 75 Euros. And a lot of work ( mostly polishing and greasing ) , that I did myself 🙂 So this bike finished it is just a little under 200 Euros.
I already rided it around 130 km, and I can say I am more the pleased. The original Dura- Ace deraileur + the Old Suntour works perfect.
The old steel frame is very comfortable. I hope you ‘ll enjoy the video! Ride Safe ! And don’t forget to like/ subscribe ! TY!

Schwinn World Tourist – Vintage Bike Check – BikemanforU A 1980s Schwinn World Tourist with Shimano’s vintage Front freewheel system is dubbed “a good little bike.” Free Shipping on bike parts, tires, tools, and cycle accessories. YouTube’s how-to guru of bicycle repair shows us a crank design that the late great Sheldon Brown once called a “solution in search of a problem.” As he shows us how the Front Freewheel system works, BikemanforU explains the freewheel in the front with the sprockets “lets you shift while coasting.” He seems underwhelmed when he adds, “It lasted for about a season and a half. It’s extremely heavy. The freewheel mechanism in here, the chain is constantly rubbing. It was Shimano’s one hit wonder. They just love to pull that kind of stuff. But it is friction style shifters on this thing, with this mechanism of front freewheel system, called an FF system, is what it was. This schwinn, kind of standard Schwinn, is a good little bike, man.” BikemanforU was a teen-ager, fixing bikes with his dad, Mr. Pump, at the family’s Bike ‘n’ Kite shop in Westhampton Beach on Long Island, when the lugged steel 10-speed World Tourist hit the market in the early 1980s. “This was right around when schwinn went overseas with their manufacturing,” he recalls. We get a good look at what’s going on with the 27″ wheels. “The chroming on this is not that great,” he says, pointing to the rear. “This thing was a mess. It was all rusted. came out of the barn from somewhere. You can see the pitting and how it’s starting to flake off. It’s starting to rust underneath and bubble up the chrome. The front one’s worse. You know why the rear one’s always in better shape than the front in terms of chrome? Because of the gear chain and lubrication that splatters down…The front doesn’t get that kind of action. The front one is really starting to corrode. Even with chrome polish, it’s not going to come out.” Overall, though, he notes, “(The bike) cleaned up pretty nice. We put a new set of BikemanforU 27 x 1 1/4 gumwall tires on this, and she’s good to go.” This model has it’s original Schwinn-approved spring cushion trefoil saddle, and upright handlebar. “Good little bike,” he says. “Basically in here for a kind of mini-tune, two tires and two tubes. (This is our ) bread and butter. It’s keeping us in business. You know what I’m saying: Take the old bike and make it into a new bike.” Watch more BikemanforU how-to DIY videos repairing and rehabbing old Schwinns. Thumbs up if you like what you see.
