You almost never see them in any condition! For the bike collector who likes something a little different than the same things everyone else collects!Mens prewar non Schwinn bikes are steadily gaining popularity and are hard to find! This is the perfect starting point for an amazing bicycle! The tires are 24x2.125. They are vintage tires and do hold air. This one has painted rims/wheels with a New Departure rear hub! The bike is an original SINGLE SPEED with coaster brakes. (pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike) DIMENSIONS A good size bike for a slightly shorter rider that would enjoy a vintage bicycle. The stand over height is approx 27 3/4. The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 25 3/4. The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 15.
The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 19. The bike will accommodate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust.
NOTED FLAWS I got this one just like you see it. It has been in long term storage and cannot wait to be enjoyed again! I believe was repainted long ago. Looks to have been welded by the cranks (or is not a great factory weld) before it was painted.
(not a big deal, see close up) The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality. Both wheels have a slight wobble when you spin them. (most every used bike out there seems to). The neck does not fully tighten. (a shim, or piece of black tape should take care of that or a slightly wider neck) NOT trying to nit pick every little thing, just like to be honest!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. This is a 10+ day service and includes packing. Contact me BEFORE you pay if you are in one of these areas! I always try to keep things as reasonable as I can.
