The serial number is 76585 and is stamped on the bottom of the cranks housing men's balloon tire bicycle with 26 wheels. I BELIEVE this is an Elgin but I may be wrong.
Looks a lot like an early Schwinn B10E. See pics and be your own expert These are next to impossible to find in ANY condition! With the insanely high price of gas (and the economy being bad) now is the time to ride a cool vintage bike!This bike has a cool mens cruiser style frame truss rod forks, wide handlebars, newer hand grips, full fenders with "flat" braces, (have that "raingutter" look) glass rear fender mounted reflector, Skiptooth chain with unique sprocket, cruiser style seat, (has some cool early 60s model car decals) Schwinn? Pedals, unique chainguard, and more! This bike comes as shown and is REALLY cool!
This bike has been local SINCE NEW! It has not seen the light of day in decades.
It came from a small town here in Wisconsin and was hidden away in a small building behind a very old long closed up Chevrolet dealership! I dug around and found a tool box "hanging" tank, and a unique rear carrier rack at the same location. They MAY have came on this bike new.
The tires are 26x2.125. They are old vintage raised white letter tires and do hold air.
The bike has triple step rims front and rear with a Bendix? The bike is an original SINGLE SPEED with coaster brakes. (pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike) DIMENSIONS The stand over height is approx 30.The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 29. The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 19. The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 22. The bike will accommodate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust. NOTED FLAWS It is not 100% flawless but is cool for being 70+ years old! Would need a total resto for show or enjoy it in its current patina! The bike has obviously been repainted. May come off you never know! Both wheels have a slight wobble when you spin them. If you check out the closed listings, these EARLY Schwinn balloon tire bikes simply dont seem to exist. This could be a great way to complete your collection. I seem to find one of these every 5 years or so. I hope you can appreciate this one for what it is! This appears to be a fairly nice original unmolested bicycle unless otherwise noted. A great bike to ride on relaxing days through the park or to the beach. Also would be a nice item to display in a shop, restaurant, rec room, sports bar, etc.
Stand out from the crowd and be the envy of people who see you riding by. People will enjoy seeing you on your vintage bike! A great classic bike at a great price Why not ride a bike? If you are looking for a fun bike to ride and enjoy this may be it! A nice bike to cruise the beach or your local park!
Priced way less than a dime store bike that wont be around 5 years from now, much less 30+ years like this one! Please give this bike a good home and DON'T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY! Classic bikes are very cool because not everyone on the block has one!People love to see and talk about and ride these classic bikes! They are more popular now than ever before!
This may be a great Birthday or other special holiday gift for someone! It is never too soon to think ahead and get someone something they may really like!! These are getting to be hard to find in any condition and to my knowledge, have not been reproduced. PLEASE NOTE that many of the bikes I list have listed have been in long term storage and have not been regularly ridden in a while. (not a bad thing) They may need standard tuning, greasing, may have old tires, surface rust etc.
I try to be as honest as possible and never want to disappoint anyone. I try to be as honest as I can and disclose anything I know about the bike. I want you to be excited about your new bike and hope you really enjoy your new vintage ride for years to come. We try to package well so the bike arrives to you in the same condition as it left us. Fed Ex just increased the rates.
