Weekend Finds: 1973 Schwinn Typhoon

bike 2

This weekend I snagged this 1973 Schwinn Typhoon boy’s bike. I purchased it around noon on Saturday at our very last stop. I recall saying to my sister and dad as were pulling up to the sale, “This sale has got to be better than that last sale.” Boy was I right! Not only did I get this bike, but we also found an old metal dairy milk crate. I didn’t have a chance to snap a photo of it before my sister hauled it home to her collection. The bicycle is in great shape and has wonderful original chippy white paint on it.

These pictures show the bike in its freshly picked condition. It needs a good cleaning and it will shimmer. The original paint is called Campus Green.

If you know me well you will not be surprised I asked about the history of the bike. I learned it had only one owner. The seller’s grandfather had bought it new in 1973 and took great care of it. It also has the owner’s registration plate mounted under the seat from Columbus, Nebraska, where he had lived. This plate will be staying on this bike!

The bike needs a little tune-up, but one of my favorite things about it is the quiet creaking sound it makes while riding it. It lets you know its been around for years. I may have bought this bicycle for my husband but that’s not going to keep me off of it.

    Found you in a Google image search.

    I had that bike. Forty-some years ago!

    Rugged? A neighbor backed her care out her driveway and into me and my Typhoon. Neither of us were hurt. Brings back great memories just seeing the pix.

    and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Superb, what a website it is! This webpage presents helpful facts to

    토렌트를 사용하다 보면 CPU가 100% 되면서 디스크 과부하를 일으키는 경우가 있습니다.
    이 때 저장된 파일을 불러 들이거나 다른 프로그램을 사용하는 경우 순간
    멈춤 현상이나 버벅임 일어나며, 파일전송이나
    기타 작업에 영향을 미치며 디스크 수명을 축소하는 원인이
    됩니다. 토렌트로 파일을 다운받는 것도 좋지만 컴퓨터를
    망가뜨리지 않기 위해서는 반드시 문제를 해야합니다.
    토렌트 사용 중에 과부하를 일으키지 않도록 설정을 변경해야 하는 여러 옵션들로 설정해놓으시는게 좋습니다.
    램이나 디스크의 점유율을 높이는데 원인이 되기도 합니다.
    어떤 프로그램인지 확인해야 합니다.
    토렌트가 원인이라면 몇 가지 설정을 변경해 줘야 합니다.
    토렌트를 3개이상 받는 경우에는 토렌트가 리소스를 많이 먹는것으로 유명합니다.
    상단에 옵션 메뉴를 선택하면 설정이 있습니다.
    첫 번째는 일반에서 설정을 변경할 옵션들입니다.
    그림처럼 3가지 옵션을 모두 체크 해제 합니다.

    져서 과부하를 유발할 수 있기 때문에 반드시 해제합니다.
    두 번째는 대역폭입니다. 대역폭 설정은 업로드와
    다운로드가 있습니다. 업로드와 다운로드 크기를
    정해 줍니다. 숫자값이 0 으로 되어 있으면 무제한 이기 때문에 많은 세션이 연결될
    수 있습니다. 빠르긴 하지만 그만큼 리소스를 많이 먹는다고 이해하시면 됩니다.
    이것 또한 단말기 과부하로 인해 인터넷 속도를 떨어뜨릴 수
    있습니다. 50kB 사이로 설정해 주는 것이 좋습니다.
    다음은 고급 설정 메뉴를 선택합니다. 그리고 오른쪽으로 가서 필터에 diskio 를
    입력합니다. 이 설정은 다운 받을 파일에 디스크 공간을 미리
    할당할 경우 0 으로 채우지 않겠다는 옵션입니다.
    파일이 큰 경우 0 으로 미리 채우는 작업은 상당한
    디스크 과부하를 발생시킵니다. 후 박스에 값을 입력합니다.
    보통 튜닝할때는 1024로 설정합니다.

    안정화를 원한다면 368로 설정합니다.
    이후에는 그대로 따라만 하셔도 됩니다. 한번에 5개이상 받는거보다는 순차적으로 받는것도 도움이 됩니다.
    다운이 완료된 순서대로 토렌트만 지워줘도 많이 개선되기는 합니다.

    프리모 캐시를 걸 때 토랜트를 사용한다면 가급적 Read only 로 해야합니다.
    병목 현상이 장난 아니게 생겨버린다.
    거의 사용이 불가능 할 정도가 됩니다.
