See pics and be your own judge men's SCHWINN DX tank bike with 26 wheels. This one was found locally and is unrestored with original paint! It has an awesome look and patina!
If you like unique vintage mens USA made Schwinn tank 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 mens "DX" cruiser style frame, Schwinn "Planes and Trains" head badge, truss rod forks, original TANK, (no horn) original feather style chainguard, cruiser style seat, (shows age) "AS" (Arnold Schwinn) seat post clamp, wide cruiser handlebars, cool hand grips, full fenders, 9 hole rear carrier RACK, (has a newer front lower mount plate) SKIPTOOTH chain, sweetheart sprocket, cool pedals, and more! This one appears to have came from the factory with a front fender mounted headlight.
(not hard to find) These bikes are rare to find in ANY condition! I look for vintage bikes all the time and have not owned one of these in a number of years!!It reminds me of the bike in the New Belgium "Fat Tire" beer bottles! I hope you enjoy it!
The tires are 26x2.125. They are vintage tires and do hold air! The bike has painted and pinstriped raised center rims front and rear with a New Departure rear hub.
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 29. The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 18 3/4.The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 21 1/2. The bike will accommodate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust.
NOTED FLAWS I got this one basically just like you see it. I absolutely love the fact that this one still wears its original paint!
Has chips wear age etc but is a great look! The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality. (chrome shows age and would need resto for show) People love this patina these days and it would be great just to enjoy it in its current unrestored patina!
(choice is yours of course) Both wheels have a slight wobble when you spin them. (most every used bike out there seems to).
Vintage mens Schwinn tank bikes are arguably the MOST collectible bikes out there! They are held in private collections and rarely come up for sale.
IF they do, they are usually traded privately among collectors. This one is far from perfect but I hope someone out there can enjoy this one and appreciate it for what it is! I hope you love it!
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.
