This is my go-anywhere beach ride. It is a 1980's lugged steel Schwinn made in Taiwan. I got it minus the rear wheel from a great bike store in Wildwood NJ for $10.00--the original componentry was pretty much ruined from exposure to the elements but the frame was rust-free, straight, and surprisingly attractive once cleaned up.

Here's the current build-up--it is designed to be indestructible as I am a big guy and this bike goes off pavement:

Derailleurs: Suntour Cyclone II
Shifters: Suntour Power Ratchet stem-mount
Crankset: Suntour Sprint
Chain: SRAM
Bottom Bracket: Shimano Cartridge BB with 107 mm spindle (low Q)
Brakes/Levers: Dia-Compe
Wheels: Ukai 700c Touring rims, Sunshine hubs, 40 spoke (!) with 700/38 Kenda tires
Seatpost: Suntour XC
Saddle: Belt
Pedals: MKS touring
Stem: Nitto Dirt Drop
Bars: Moustache bars
Rack: Pletscher

This bike has turned out to be very fun to ride and it is lighter than it looks--some of the old Suntour stuff is quite light and it is very durable.

Thanks for looking!
