You could be the proud owner of this vintage orange Schwinn Le Tour III road bicycle. This bicycle was made in Japan on Dec 6th, 1977 for the 1978 model year. This fully lugged frame with butted top and down tubes has a chrome trimmed front fork, alloy hubs, steel rims, and quick release front and rear wheels. This bike is ready to hit the streets again soon.


This bicycle has minor scratches in paint but is otherwise in good overall condition and free of major damage including bends and cracks.

This bike has been fully tuned by a shop mechanic with many years of experience. Then the bike was given a thorough eighty three point inspection by the owner. Finally the owner rides the bicycle in every gear checking steering, braking, and shifting. After you receive this bicycle minimal adjustments and assembly will be needed to be ready to ride.

This bike is being sold as is, please see photographs for details.
