1955 SCHWINN TOWN AND COUNTRY TANDEM 2-PERSON BICYCLE VINTAGE BIKE DRUM BRAKE 55. Here is an original VINTAGE I believe made September 1955. The serial number is T003129 Schwinn TOWN AND COUNTRY tandem/2-person bicycle with 26 wheels. It is in the original and very appealing OPAL RED colored factory paint.
If you like TOP OF THE LINE vintage original tandem 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 is loaded with amazing parts and has survived quite well for being a 60+ year old bicycle! Love the original factory paint and white flowing pin stripes! I believe this frame was brazed by hand!
The original joints are seemless and look great! (see pics) Check out the COOL Schwinn TANDEM head badge! This one has both original chainguards in place, front and rear handlebars, slightly newer Schwinn Comfort hand grips in black, the CORRECT impossible to find "AS" (Arnold Schwinn) neck with bolts and seat post clamps in chrome! It has Lycett seats/saddles front and rear.
Has factory 3-piece cottered type cranks, Schwinn bow pedals, full fenders, (rear has a couple dents, nothing serious) original kickstand in place, and SO MUCH MORE! Tandem bikes are SO MUCH FUN!You and your sweetie can enjoy a ride through the park together! Also a great way to take a younger person for an enjoyable ride!
A fun activity for you and your best friend!!! The tires are 26x1 1/2 (To fit Schwinn S-4 rims) They are slightly newer replacement tires front and rear and both do hold air. The bike has chrome Schwinn rims front and rear with the super cool FRONT AND REAR EXPANDER BRAKES! The stopping power of this bike is AMAZING! The bike is an original SINGLE SPEED with FRONT and REAR drum/expander brakes!
These provide much better stopping power as you have 2 people on this bike! A lot of bikes DID NOT come with this great feature! Check out the thick heavy duty spokes! I was told the bearings etc have been greased recently but I have not verified it. DIMENSIONS The FRONT rider 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 31 1/2. The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 21 1/2. The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 20 1/2. 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 17 1/2. The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 21. The bike will accommodate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust.
NOTED FLAWS It is not 100% flawless but is nice for its age! The paint is original and looks relatively good for a 50+ year old bike! It does have chips, scratches, etc but has survived quite well compare to most that you see! See pics and be your own judge I love the fact that this one has not been repainted! The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality.Handlebars and chainguard chrome shows age. I sincerely hope someone out there can truely appreciate this bike! You see newer Schwinn tandem bikes often but RARELY see these! I had one other on in the last 5+ years of doing this! They are a rare find! ESPECIALLY with both chainguards in place AND the cool front and rear expander brakes! THIS IS THE TIME OF YEAR WE ALL WAIT FOR! GET OUT THERE WITH YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER OR A YOUNGER RIDER AND HAVE SOME REAL FUN! THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO SPEND QUALITY TIME TOGETHER! 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.
