1980 SCHWINN CRUISER 5-SPEED MENS BALLOON TIRE BICYCLE BLUE! Here is an original December 1980 VINTAGE (serial number is MR) mens Schwinn CRUISER 5-speed deluxe bicycle with 26 wheels. It is in the original and very appealing RADIANT BLUE colored factory paint.If you like CLEAN UNRESTORED original bikes, this may be a great bike for you. It was always stored inside in a clean dry area. 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 cruiser style frame and forks with original paint and decals, original screen chainguard, Messinger cruiser style seat, wide cruiser handlebars, full fenders, aluminum shifter, Shimano derialleur, and more! I BELIEVE this bike to be basically ALL ORIGINAL parts from when it was new and in awesome condition! (see pics and be your own judge). I was told it was never really ridden much since new. Consequently, this is one of the very nicest unrestored original versions out there!
A great investment that will only go UP in value if you take good care of it! I love these Schwinn B6, Phantom, style bikes! Many people dont know these exist. You rarely see them in any condition! The tires are 26x2.125.
They are vintage wide whitewall Schwinn STUDDED BALLOON tires and do hold air. The bike has chrome Schwinn S2 rims front and rear. The bike is an original FIVE-SPEED and the gears do operate.
The hand controlled brakes are operable as well. (may need adjustment or possible cable replacement) 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 3/4.The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 19. The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 22. The bike will accomadate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust. NOTED FLAWS It is not 100% flawless but is nice! The paint looks good for a 35+ year old bike! (may have a chip or scratch here or there) The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality. Both wheels have a slight wobble when you spin them. 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 "1980 SCHWINN CRUISER 5-SPEED MENS BALLOON TIRE BICYCLE BLUE! TYPHOON B6 VINTAGE" is in sale since Thursday, June 02, 2016.
