I HAVE A 60'S MODEL SCWINN VARSITY THAT IM FIXING UP AND WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE COULD TELL ME IF I CAN PUT 700C TIRES AND RIMS ON IT AND WHT ACTUAL SIZE?

Although it is so very true that the 'link' mentioned by NachoMahma DOES give you an overflowing cornucopia of information on all kinds of tire and rim sizes, one of your major concerns should be, (1) Will the hub/axle spacing of the newer tire/rim combination fit between the dropouts without the need to adjust the spacing. (2) If and when it fits, once tightened, will it stay on. At that same site { sheldonbrown.com } , use the Glossary and see Spacing(Frame/Hub). Happy Riding, gen
