1972 Schwinn Super Sport
My latest project is this 1972 Schwinn Super Sport. At first, it looks like an electroforge welded frame, like a Varsity or Continental. These frames are actually fillet brazed Cro-Mo straight gauge steel tubing.
I've stripped down to the frame and re-built the bottom bracket and headset already. I've cleaned up most of the parts and will be reassembling it over the next couple of weeks.
