Vintage 1951 Schwinn Starlet H248091 Bicycle Blue Original 26 Rare Chicago. Up for sale is this 1951.
The bike itself is in pretty good condition considering its age. To my knowledge the parts are original with the exception of the tires which state Good Year. There is some minor rusting/pitting and it does appear to have been repainted, my guess is someone was trying to make a boys bike out of it. There is a little rust on the tail, rim and handle bars but should polish right out. The head lamp (Rocket Ray), both reflectors, original seat and the additional support / suspension on the front wheel are in tact.It does however seem to be missing the rack and not sure if the pedals are original. Overall, the bike pedals very well. Please have a look at all the pictures and let me know if you have any questions. I've add the original features below for additional detail. 69" L x 34" T.
