Schwinn Breeze I have been looking for a bike for my wife. She likes the old Schwinns and the option for a similar bike was the Walmart Schwinn. Well in my travels for work I went home to visit my family in CO and what is sitting in my sisters yard, A green Schwinn Breeze. Complete with fenders baskets, generator front and rear lights baskets etc. Some rust on the chrome but the painted parts are in excellent condition. The tires are shot. The seat is even in great shape. She had bought it a few years ago and had planned on planting flowers in the baskets. It took a lot of convincing and $50 bucks to talk her out of it. So now I have it. I am going to try to fix it up while I am traveling around for works so that at least it is rideable when I get home. Preliminary inspection today shows all bearings work good front and rear tires spin nicely with no noise. Steering bearings are smooth but squeak. bottom bracket smooth no squeaks. Not bad for sitting in the yard for 4 years. The generator spins very smoothly with no signs of damage or catching. There is some rust on the chrome handlebars and rims. What is the best way to remove it, it seems to be all surface rust? Brakes move freely but cables are seized. So I will replace those. Also I did not check the 3 speed shifter or hub I will clean it up first so when I do operate it nothing breaks. Here are pics. Any idea as to the age? Any idea how to combat the rust? Any things I should be cautious of when regreasing everything and getting it all to work? I am working nights and sleeping days and not on to much but will check back as I can.
