Shows weathering with fade/scuffs etc, but how many of these this old & this size are still even on the road, much less original. White graphics are discolored but will buff clean to white. Original large Schwinn Spitfire badge that's weathered. Solid straight Balloon Tire fenders in good shape for the age, some rough edges & evidence of being painted at some point but now are showing the original cosmetics under.Front had blue/silver on rear which does come off with little elbow grease. Nice solid steel rear rack that does not appear original but fits and looks good. It's just hooked to the seat, no braces so just for looks now, if you want to use it, will need the braces. Real nice original shining chrome clover crankset with great vintage schwinn pedals, pedals good, chain needs lube, bearings feel nice. Excellent solid straight vintage chrome chainguard. Nice original chrome handlebars/stem with some scuffs/dull spots but overall nice yet, includes vintage schwinn grips that match the schwinn S saddle, the saddle shows wear but still comfy.
Excellent/new 24"x3.45" HOGGY-G Ultra Thick-Ultra Slick Fat Balloon Tires. Real fat, they fit the bike good, though the fenders are real tight but don't rub as is, may need to adjust the braces when being assembled. Good original Schwinn Tubular S2 white rims, front includes Schwinn hub/rear is New Departure coaster that works good. Rear spins good but not perfect, front is missing spokes/few loose spokes but actually spins good, but does have slight wobble due to the spokes, install spokes to true it up.
You can ride it as is just fine. Overall a great vintage Jr Schwinn Flat Bar bike that's ready to go & show, gets lots of attention. Pictures tell all, if not, please ask.
