1955 SCHWINN HORNET/SPITFIRE MENS STRAIGHT BAR TANK BIKE VINTAGE PANTHER B6 S2! Here is an original VINTAGE I believe Sept 1955. The serial number is T25286 men's SCHWINN HORNET STRAIGHTBAR beach cruiser TANK bicycle with 26 wheels.
It is in the original and very appealing RED and white 2-tone colored factory paint. This is an AWESOME color combination on this bike and you rarely see it on these!To me, this bike type of bike is absolutely AMAZING and they almost never come along like this! 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 straight bar Hornet/Panther cruiser style frame with original paint, truss rod forks, large Schwinn head badge, frame mounted straight bar TANK with horn inside, I LOVE the cool vintage decals. Tank paint looks somewhat faded.
Has newer decals original paint whizzer "feather" style chainguard with a spitfire decal, cruiser seat, (has rips) "AS" (Arnold Schwinn) seat post clamp, wide cruiser handlebars, Schwinn script hand grips, full fenders, fender mounted headlight with lens, also has cool vintage era graphics light is untested, cool Schwinn pedals, 9 hole rear carrier RACK, and more! This is a cool looking bike that you can be proud to own, display, or ride!I hope you enjoy and appreciate this one! Stuff like this does not come along often! I'm not sure why I decided to sell this one! I hope it gets a great new home! The tires are 26x2.125 balloon tires. They are vintage Schwinn tires and do hold air. The bike has factory painted and pinstriped Schwinn S-2 tubular rims front and rear with a New Departure rear hub.
This is a VERY unique bike! I have not seen one of these in a while! 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. 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 It is not 100% flawless but is not bad considering its age. I got this one exactly like you see it and love it! The paint looks ok for a 60+ year old bike! Has some chips scratches wear etc but has survived better than most.
It has a great look that is popular these days vs a restored bike. The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality. Overall, this is one of the coolest bikes you could ask for!A rare bike in a rare color... I truly hope you can appreciate this one for what it is. This is a much harder bike to find than a Black Phantom or a Krate bike. 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. I always try to keep things as reasonable as I can.
