Asking around on Craigslist has yielded a 58cm 1989 Schwinn Traveler.
It’s steel, lugged, has downtube shifter posts and the frame is in pretty good condition – no bends or dings in the steel but scratches and scrapes on the paint.
This frame is bare so a lot of parts are needed – headset, bottom bracket, pretty much everything. I might just keep it on hand until I can build up more parts. It will make the perfect cheap knock around bike but I’m not going to put new parts into it.
The search for parts continues. As least it’s not as bad as The Path of Death!
