1940s Arnold Schwinn'Ace' vintage bicycle (restoration project) RARE!! Condition is "Used" rear rim was run over by a vehicle at some point (see pics -the rim and spokes will need straightened or replaced). The fender headlight is missing. All parts are original except the front basket -1960s?

Both original metal inner tube caps are included. The Arnold Schwinn ACE badge is in pretty good condition (see pics). The foot pedals seemed rusted in place but may be restorable.
The'sweet heart sprocket' and chain guard are both in good shape (see pics). The rear round reflector is good and intact (see pics).

The bike is very restorable...
I would like to see this rare and vintage bicycle go to someone with the same intention of giving the proper TLC it deserves. I attained this bike just West of Chillicothe, IL and really wanted to fix it up as I grew up restoring old Schwinn, Hawthorne, and various other cool vintage bikes. These bikes are truly built to last and would make a great addition to a vintage bike collection. Message me anytime if you have any questions.
