The bike has chrome Schwinn S-7 rims front and rear. The bike is an original THREE SPEED and the gears do NOT operate. The hand controlled brakes are operable! (may need adjustment or possible cable replacement) (rear hub goes into a freewheel mode and needs to be adjusted or overhauled) This one has been in very long term storage! DIMENSIONS The standover height is approx 30 1/2.
The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 27 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 It is not 100% flawless but relatively ok for its age. (see pics and be your own judge) This one has been in very long term storage and cannot wait to be enjoyed once again! I love original paint bikes! The paint looks ok for a 60+ year old bike! (has chips scratches age etc) The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality.
Both wheels have a slight wobble when you spin them. (most every used bike out there seems to) The surface/finish of the rim shows age.
(restore/replace or enjoy them in their unrestored patina) Would be cool to display with your 1950s-1960s Chevrolet or any other vintage car or truck. 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. The item "1956 SCHWINN CORVETTE MENS 3-SPEED CRUISER BICYCLE VINTAGE TYPHOON S7+RACK BLUE" is in sale since Thursday, March 12, 2020.
