1950s SCHWINN HORNET LADIES VINTAGE BICYCLE BLUE PANTHER TYPHOON SPITFIRE B6 S2. Here is an original VINTAGE I believe March 9th 1956. The serial number is V43385 ladies SCHWINN Hornet or Spitfire beach cruiser bicycle with 26 wheels. A cool classic Schwinn made in the USA! If you like COOL unrestored original bikes, this may be a great bike for you.
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 ladies cruiser style frame and forks, Schwinn whizzer style "feather" chainguard, large vintage Schwinn crash rail cruiser style seat, "AS" (Arnold Schwinn) seat post clamp, wide cruiser handlebars, newer black hand grips, full fenders, (have dents) cool pedals, bolt on kickstand, and more! This one has that cool unrestored look that people LOVE these days!
A great bike for display, parts, restore, or use the hard to find parts to build a mens bicycle! The tires are 26x2.125. They are old vintage balloon tires and do hold air.The bike has painted and pinstriped Schwinn Tubular S-2 rims front and rear with a NEW DEPARTURE rear hub! Rims surface has surface rust. These will clean up much better with muratic acid. KNOW the safe process before you attempt! The bike is an original SINGLE SPEED with coaster brakes. (pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike) DIMENSIONS The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 27 1/2. The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 18. 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 I got this one just like you see it. So this one was obviously repainted. Someone with some patience and skill may be able to bring back whats underneath? 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 seem to) A cool CHICAGO USA made Schwinn! This one will turn some heads on the street, in the park, or at the campground! 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.
