1950s SCHWINN WORLD VARSITY ROAD RACER BIKE VINTAGE TRAVELER SUPERIOR ACE 1953? IF you like cool and unusual early 1950s Schwinn Chicago bikes, check this one out! Here is an original 1953 era VINTAGE I BELIEVE made in 1953? The serial number is J74018 and is stamped on the left rear dropout.Has a Sturmey Archer rear hub but I did not see the date ladies Schwinn World Varsity (Model W-615) road cruiser bicycle with 26 wheels. It is in the original and very appealing BLUE colored factory paint. If you like UNIQUE original lightweight bikes, this may be a great bike for you. 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 ladies cruiser style frame and forks with original paint and decals, (love the red white and blue colors) super cool unique Schwinn "wings" head badge, original Schwinn hockey stick "Varsity" chainguard, Deluxe Sport cruiser style seat, "AS" (Arnold Schwinn) seat post clamp, wide cruiser handlebars, Schwinn script hand grips, full chrome raised center fenders with chrome braces, reflector bow pedals, and more!
Great to restore or hard to find lightweight bike parts such as a World, New World, Traveler, Paramount, Superior etc. The tires are 26x1 3/8. They are slightly newer whitewall replacement tires and do hold air. The bike has chrome non knurled rims front and rear with a Sturmey Archer rear hub. The bike is an original 3-speed and the gears to operate at the rear wheel.
(would need a simple cable and shifter if you want it to operate as a 3-speed) This one does have a coaster brake. (pedal backwards slightly to stop).
DIMENSIONS The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 29 1/2. The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 20. The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 20 1/2.
The bike will accomadate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust. NOTED FLAWS I got this one just like you see it. Ride it, restore it or use it for its HARD TO FIND parts!
The paint is original and is a nice color for this era Schwinn. (has chips scratches etc) Chrome is shiny but 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.
