1963 SCHWINN CORVETTE MENS 2-SPEED COPPERTONE BICYCLE VINTAGE CHEVY TYPHOON+RACK. Here is an original VINTAGE (i BELIEVE Jan 22nd 1963 The serial number is A335763) mens Schwinn CORVETTE 2-speed beach cruiser bicycle with 26 wheels. (model F17) It is in the original and very appealing COPPERTONE GOLD colored factory paint. This color is AMAZING and you do not see it often on a Corvette!
If you like UNIQUE original 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 was named after the legendary Chevy Corvette! Every kid wanted a bike like this, few were lucky enough to get one!Car theme bikes are the coolest! I have a Corvette bike in my own personal collection! What a perfect color for a Corvette bike of this era! This bike has a cool mens cruiser style frame and forks with original paint and decals, super cool Schwinn "STARBURST" head badge, original screen Schwinn CORVETTE chainguard, Schwinn coppertone gold CRASHRAIL cruiser style seat, wide cruiser handlebars, Schwinn hand grips, full fenders, Rear fender mounted "S" Reflector, Schwinn bow pedals, front carrier RACK, and more! I believe this bike to be basically all original parts from when it was new! (see pics and be your own judge) This is AS GOOD as a Schwinn Corvette gets! Add up the value of the individual parts...
There is a ton of value here! PLUS this one is an ORIGINAL BIKE!Not something built by someone! I HIGHLY contemplated keeping this one in my collection. Unfortunately, I cant keep them all! A couple local guys wanted this one via trade but have not came through SO I decided to offer this one to you!
I hope you LOVE IT! The tires are 26x1 3/4.
They are vintage slightly newer replacement tires and do hold air. The bike has chrome Schwinn S-7 rims front and rear. The bike is an original Bendix Automatic TWO-SPEED "kickback" hub with coaster brakes. (pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike or to shift from low to high or high to low) If you have never ridden one of these, they are a blast!
DIMENSIONS The standover height is approx 30 3/4. The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 28 1/4.
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 not bad for its age.The paint looks respectable for a 60+ year old bike! (I love the fact that it is original but it has chips scratches etc) It has survived better than the majority of them! 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) Rear fender is missing one rivet from a brace.
(you may not even notice but I like to be honest) 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. This includes what I pay for packing. 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.
