1980 Schwinn Tornado

The bike that started my building and collecting addiction!!!

My 1980 schwinn tornado,if this bike could talk the stories it would tell.I bought this from a buddy when I was 14 yrs old for 20 bucks and spent most of my teenage yrs riding it every day and everywhere. I rode this bike in high school nearly everyday and always had people commenting on the "old schwinn".Might not be the coolest bike in the world but it truly holds a special place in my heart and the memories of the old days always come back when I see it. Its been in the basement for a long time waiting for me to rebuild it and finally decided now was the time.
