1982 Schwinn Sidewinder 26

A score passed on to me by a good friend and collector here in Tucson, rides like a dream!

Very nice survivor condition, loaded with quality components and everything works properly. The balloon tires have plenty of thread but the sidewalls are a little dry so I'll take them off, clean them the best I can and put them away. I want it to be a rider so some cool 26" tires will have to go on this one. I plan on taking it apart to the last bolt and do a thorough cleaning, re assembly and that's it.

On side note, a few things are different from the ones I've seen on here and the catalog itself. This one has bars without a crossbar and the fork is the same color as the frame, let me know if you know why. Thanks!
I'll do a full parts list once it's done.
Stay tuned for this gem's restoration!
