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 some super cool features you do not see often on vintage Schwinn bikes! This bike has a cool mens straight bar cruiser style frame and forks with original paint and decals, large Schwinn head badge, super cool original screen chainguard with stars, old cruiser style seat, (needs resto) wide cruiser handlebars, Schwinn script hand grips, full fenders, front carrier RACK, and more! I believe this bike to be mostly original parts from when it was new!
(see pics and be your own judge) This series of bike is really cool and you rarely see them in any condition! This bike would be fun to restore or would make a great unrestored "rat rod" type rider. The tires are 26x1 3/4.They are vintage tires and do hold air. The bike has Schwinn S-7 rims front and rear with a Bendix Aviation rear hub.
The bike is an original Bendix lever shift 2-speed but seems to operate as a SINGLE SPEED with coaster brakes. (pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike) DIMENSIONS The stand over height is approx 30 1/2. The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 27 1/2. The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 18 1/2.The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 22. The bike will accommodate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust. NOTED FLAWS I got this one just like you see it. It has been in very long term storage and would need a complete restoration from top to bottom for show. Or enjoy it in its current unrestored patina! Consider it a "fixer upper". I LOVE the fact that this bike still wears its COOL original paint! Chrome shows age and wear. Rear wobble has a wobble when you spin it and is missing a spoke. NOT trying to nit pick this cool bike, just like to be honest. With some TLC, you will have a super cool, hard to find bike, at a great price. This is an unusual model and you almost NEVER see them in any condition! 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.
