1961 SCHWINN STARLET LADIES VINTAGE TANK BIKE HOLLYWOOD CORVETTE JAGUAR S7 RACK. Here is an original June 1961 VINTAGE (The serial number is F121170) ladies Schwinn STARLET beach cruiser bicycle with 26 wheels. It is in the original and very appealing Summer Cloud White and Powder Blue colored factory paint. This is a nice original color combo on a ladies vintage Schwinn!(see pics and be your own judge) People LOVE this color combination and you RARELY see it in any condition! If you like UNIQUE nice looking unrestored original 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 original design ladies frame and forks with original paint and decals, factory frame mounted horn TANK with horn inside, horn has batteries inside and works!
Original screen Schwinn Starlet chainguard, Schwinn cruiser style seat, wide cruiser handlebars, (chrome has spots on the top) Schwinn hand grips, full fenders, 9 hole rear carrier RACK, and more! This is a cute bike!Front fender has a fender mounted headlight. The previous owner got very resourceful to make it work by adding a small flashlight!
(yes its included) Headlight housing was repainted. The tires are 26x1.75. They are vintage Schwinn WHITEWALL tires and do hold air. The bike has factory painted and pinstriped Schwinn Tubular S7 rims front and rear with a Super rear hub.
The bike is an original SINGLE SPEED with coaster brakes. (pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike) DIMENSIONS: The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 28. 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 It is not 100% flawless but is respectable for its age. I love the fact that the bike has its original paint.
The paint looks ok for a 50+ year old bike! (has obvious chips scratches etc) Many people love this type of patina! The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality.Both wheels have a slight wobble when you spin them. (most every used bike out there seems to). Overall a super cool ride! Turn some heads with this one! IN MY OPINION, this particular style bike is one of the MOST BEAUTIFUL looking ladies middleweight bikes EVER made by Schwinn! (Check out the pics and be your own judge) This one has so much WOW factor when you look at it! Bikes like this simply do not come along and I hope you absolutely LOVE IT whether you ride it or simply display it. This one is a REAL head turner! 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.
