Was this one born as a Schwinn or made by another company? Looks Schwinn to me but i may be wrong.
See pics and be your own judge Its a unique vintage color and a good look! With the insanely high price of gas (and the economy being bad) now is the time to ride a cool vintage bike! I got this one just like you see it!
I BELIEVE the frame is a mens straight bar Hornet/Panther cruiser style frame and forks. I has the proper looking holes to mount a head badge and has an "AS" (Arnold Schwinn) seat post clamp.
This one has a Schwinn chainguard, Murray/CWC looking cranks, cruiser style seat, wide cruiser handlebars, glitter hand grips, chrome accessory? Add a TANK and a rack and have an over the top cool antique/vintage bicycle! This one has an accessory type (maybe Miller) Kickstand bolted on. The original kickstand mount IS in place!
(original kickstand removed long ago). This one has lot of potential!
Ride, it restore it, display it, or build it into more of a custom! They are vintage tires and do hold air. (Im sure this one was born with 26x2.125 balloon tires) The bike has factory painted and pinstriped Schwinn S-2 rims front and rear with a New Departure rear hub. The bike has a super cool BENDIX AVIATION "Lever Shift" 2-speed hub with coaster brakes!
(pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike) Its a little hard to tell but it does seem to shift from low to high and high to low. DIMENSIONS The stand over height is approx 30 1/2. The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 28. 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 exactly like you see it! This one was repainted long ago but is a cool color! (I believe was originally black) The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality.(the chrome would need a total resto for show) Both wheels have a slight wobble when you spin them. Most every used bike out there seems to I hope you can see the beauty in this one! It has LOTS of potential! I took lots of pics, I have nothing to hide. 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.
