to further discuss this bicycle, the tires are in excellent condition and do in fact hold air, they are tubular (ie.tubeless) and mount on wooden rims that are steel clad. I actually rode the bicycle this evening. I might be willing to part out the wheels and tires $100 firm

WANTED:   decals (white) for pinstripes on front forks posted by: The Bicycling Guitarist on 10/15/2001 at 3:33:40 AM
Hello. I'm looking to add details to my trusty 1976 Schwinn Continental by restoring factory-style pinstripes to the front forks. I had painted the bike Flag Red all over when I got it twenty years ago, and I don't remember what the pinstripes looked like. An exact match is not necessary, just something that will fit and look good. Must be white to match the other decals and my stage name painted on the "nutcracker" (top frame) tube. Thanks, Chris Watson

At the auto parts store you can buy pin stripe tape--lots of colors to chose from

   RE:WANTED:   decals (white) for pinstripes on front forks posted by Robert on 10/16/2001 at 3:02:30 AM
The pinstriping was probably similar to what is on the Collegiates in the picture database.
