Okay, thanks. I am in southwestern VT, so not that far away!  ;D

I have been down your way once to pick up a bike (in Fall River). We have a few members from MA here.

I am in Massachusetts,so I probably won't make it to the show. If there is a show out this way,I would try to make it.

Pete, where in MA are you located?

Yes, Schwinn made a conversion kit that utilized the drop down shifters to the top tube. I am sure the kit was pretty popular especially for the Tourist Schwinn's pre 1967.

I thought this whole topic sounded familiar, and I see that there's a full parts breakdown for that kit, with diagram, in my 1973 Parts Catalog under the heading of "PARTS FOR CONVERSION KITS USED ON SCHWINN BICYCLES PRIOR TO 1967"

In addition to the individually numbered parts, they also list a full right-side conversion kit (all necessary parts except cable) as 20 540, and a full left-side conversion kit (except cable) as 20 541.

Nice find. It looks like it was converted to the Twin Stick shifters.
I've seen this on other pre '67 tourists. I think they did it in production so they could put the shifters up top while still utilizing a stock Varsity frame with the shift studs on the downtube.

You did a very nice job on a very nice bike.  I am assuming the bike is a bit big for you as you have the seat clamp reversed and slide forward and lowered so much.  Enjoy the ride.  Roger
It is taller than most would think for me but I like the feel of the ride and get around on it very well I am 5'7" so not sure but my favorite bike.



I ride everyday just not that far.
