Mens Vintage Arnold Schwinn D-19 Straight Bar Balloon Tire Cruiser. Great Schwinn to do a partial restore on as the bike is all original and came from the original owner, it's in pretty good original condition for its age besides the obvious cosmetics, but a fun riding bike. Original Skiptooth Setup with good chain. Nice The World Brass Badge.Rides pretty good for its age, cruises down the street in vintage style. Pedals good, brakes nice and gets the attention. Nice solid straight bar Schwinn frame with no issues, no rusting or corrosion. Includes original but faded paint, though has some surface weathering, but not bad for its age, a buff job would brighten it up..
Has original pinstripe decals that are somewhat faded. Solid straight chaingaurd with some surface paint weathering.
Good solid original fenders with surface weathering/chipping paint but nice rear fender reflector. No major dents or dings. Chrome bars show faint pitting but still solid, good stem and original big Schwinn grips. Solid original Schwinn springer Saddle that has some worn leather covering.
Good chrome Skiptooth Crankset, some surface oxidation but would clean up. Original pedals work good but show some weathering/wear/rust. Newer bearings and grease installed.Original White striped Schwinn Tubular S7 rims that spin pretty good, though like most its age, not perfect as there are some rusting/loose spokes with one or two missing. I will include replacement spokes for both and this will fix it. Though it's good to ride as is. The white on the rims show fade/surface oxidation & chip paint, but no corrosion, front at some point had the center painted black.
Rear new departure Skiptooth hub works good. Front Vintage Firestone High Speed balloon tire shows some weathering and sidewall peel but appears to have some miles left and holds air good but should be replaced in the near future. Rear replacement is like new. Overall a great easy semi-Restore project that would be a nice ride when finished or cruise cool vintage as it sits.Pictures tell all, if not, please ask.
