1960s MONARK AMERICAN MENS VINTAGE BEACH CRUISER BICYCLE SCHWINN RAT ROD MURRAY! Here is an original 1960s VINTAGE (I did not see the serial number) Monark "Americana" beach cruiser bicycle with 26 wheels. (look close, I believe that is the name on the top bar) It is cool original black and white 2-tone paint and has a cool unique design!
I really like the factory paint accents/pinstripes on the fenders! 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 mens cruiser style frame and forks with original paint and decals, chrome accessory chainguard, unique cranks and sprocket, narrow pedals, cruiser style seat, (ripped) wide cruiser handlebars, cool hand grips, full fenders, (have dents) front carrier RACK, and more! This one has just the right amount of patina that people absolutely LOVE these days! I have seen many "Schwinn American" bikes.
I dont recall ever seeing a Monark "Americana" Monark bikes were also produced in Chicago. I would imagine this was produced as a direct competitor to the Schwinn!
The tires are 26x175 tires. They are vintage tires and do hold air. This one has raised factory painted and pinstriped rims/wheels front and rear with a Perry B100 rear hub!The bike is an original SINGLE SPEED with coaster brakes. (pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike) Hub works but probably should be gone through just because of the age if you are going to ride it DIMENSIONS The stand over height is approx 30 1/4. The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 28 1/4. 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 21 1/2. 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 cannot wait to be enjoyed once again. The paint is original, which is cool! Very happy it was never repainted.(has chips scratches, age, etc) The chrome is shiny but is not perfect show quality. Both wheels have a wobble when you spin them and should be trued. Rear wheel is missing a spoke0 A unique bike that is harder to find than you think! 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.
