Moved the handlebars up and scabbed a brake lever from my wife's old Raleigh. I feel like a kid again riding this bike. I bought some tan bar tape to match the sidewalls, but I like the silver. I think I'll look for some hand grips.

The bars are high - I'm going to catch a lot of wind with this setup. I don't think I took very much off of the bike (freewheel, front & rear derailleurs, plus put aluminum rims on) but it feels really light. Someday maybe I'll run across an old brown Brooks saddle. Anyway, old Schwinn's back on the road!
