1950s SCHWINN WASP BALLOON TIRE BICYCLE VINTAGE CRUISER S2 B6 HORNET PHANTOM 50S. Here is an original 1950s VINTAGE (I believe made October 31st 1958 HALLOWEEN The serial number is K842956) men's SCHWINN WASP beach cruiser bicycle with 26 wheels. Ive never seen a Schwinn manufactured on Halloween! It is in the original and very appealing 2-tone colored factory paint.
If you like COOL unrestored original bikes, this may be a great bike for you. This bike has an AWESOME PATINA and could be a blast to ride on Halloween! With the insanely high price of gas (and the economy being bad) now is the time to ride a cool vintage bike! There is something about this bike I absolutely LOVE! Honestly, the more you look at it, the more you fall in love with it!Bikes like this just dont come along these days! They are very well built and designed to survive the test of time! They are smooth riders as well! They try to make thing that look like this today, but nothing looks like an original! I believe this bike to be mostly original parts from when it was new.
(see pics and be your own judge) It has a cool ORIGINAL paint B6 frame and forks, (with obvious rat rod type patina) large Schwinn head badge, cool deluxe Phantom style chainguard, wide cruiser style handlebars, newer glitter grips, unique neck/stem, Schwinn forks with TRUSS RODS, (look like they were replaced long ago) full fenders, (have dents) cool pedals, cool cruiser style seat, newer chain, and more! This bike is AWESOME and these never come along! I believe the bike originally came with a Delta Rocket Ray headlight!
Take this one to your local car show or cruise night! People will LOVE IT and ask where you ever found it! I sincerely hope you enjoy this COOL bike! It is like a step back in time! The tires are 26x2.125.
They are vintage tires and do hold air. The bike has CHROME SCHWINN S2 rims front and rear with a Bendix hub! (rear wheel is missing some spokes) The bike is an original SINGLE SPEED with coaster brakes.(pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike) DIMENSIONS The stand over height is approx 31. The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 28 1/2.
The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 18 1/2. 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.
It was recently removed from VERY long term storage and cannot wait to be enjoyed once again. The paint has that cool unrestored patina that people LOVE these days! Chrome would need resto to be show quality. Both wheels have a wobble when you spin them.
(most every used bike out there seems to) This bike has been in long term storage and cannot wait to be enjoyed once again. 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.
