I have to admit that I was pretty dejected when the damage was first viewed. That bike rode so well and trying to find another Japanasonic Schwinn of the same frame size and caliber was going to be difficult at best. This is especially true when keeping in mind how much I paid for that bike. The only thing I can think of offhand is to not scour the Earth, but use settlement money to buy a new Panasonic Track frame from Japan. Yeah, it'll be a pretty penny, but it will ride just as nicely as that old Super Le Tour 12.2 did.
