Fall Rides: Schwinn New World Bicycle On the Road
Before the weather turned to rain a couple days ago, I managed to get in some fair weather riding on the 1940s Schwinn New World. I decided to take a few shots of the bike, which has that nice "relic" type condition to it without being ratty.
I have put back the original type Mesinger mattress saddle to help move me a little closer to the handlebars. The Mesinger is nice in that it has the ability to slide forward and backward to adjust the riding position.
