Some more progress on touring bicycle!

Making some more progress with my touring bicycle; got cables installed and adjusted; then mocked up with wheels and tires (very old skinwall tires) for brake adjustments and general appearance; seems that the CyclePro Oswego was originally a Touring bicycle frame…. or a commuter; it has full braze-ons; with the exception of not having newer style rack mounts on front fork; but it has eyelets for fenders and rack legs for the older style front racks; I am not sure if I want drop bars or if I want to keep the Bull-Moose handlebar; all that’s needed are chain, seat w/ seat post, and new slick tires; maybe change rear gearing to lower gears
