These bikes are solid, well built bikes, made in Chicago! They are built to stand the test of time and are great riders! This one even has the accommodations if you ever want to add front and rear hand brakes! The tires are 26x 1 3/8. They are vintage tires and they do hold air.
The front is a Schwinn. Rear is a slightly newer replacement The bike has chrome Schwinn S6 wheels front and rear with a 56 dated Sturmey Archer rear hub.
The bike is an original THREE SPEED and the gears do operate. The hand controlled brakes are operable as well. (Has been in very long term storage and will need adjustment or possible cable replacement) DIMENSIONS: The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 29. The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 19.
The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 21. 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. I LOVE the fact that the bike still wears its original paint!(has chips, scratches, etc) The chrome is shiny but is not perfect show quality. Both wheels have a slight wobble when you spin them. (most every used bike out there seems to) Bike does not have a head badge. THIS IS A COOL BASIS FOR SOMETHING GREAT! 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.
