1961 SCHWINN TRAVELER MENS 3-SPEED BIKE VINTAGE SPEEDSTER RACER COLLEGIATE BLACK. IF you like cool, unique, and different...
Here is an original 1961 VINTAGE (I believe made November 21st 1961 The serial number is L145157) mens Schwinn Traveler 3-speed road cruiser bicycle with 26 wheels. It is in the original and very appealing BLACK colored factory paint. This bike is cool and unusual and is a more deluxe lightweight cruiser bike of the time. If you like UNIQUE 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 mens frame and forks with original paint and decals, (love the unique original graphics on this one) Schwinn STARBURST head badge, original screen deluxe c hainguard, cool Schwinn CRASH RAIL cruiser style seat, wide cruiser handlebars, Schwinn hand grips, super cool SCHWINN APPROVED brake calipers, full STAINLESS STEEL fenders, (have dents) Schwinn BOW pedals, (same style used on early Schwinn Stingray bikes) and more! This one has factory chrome kickstand, seat post clamp, and fender braces. These are nice factory details found only on the deluxe bikes of the time. These bikes ride great and are made in Chicago, USA! I believe this bike to be basically all original parts from when it was new.
(see pics and be your own judge). This bike recently came out of long term storage in a small town in Wisconsin USA! It has not seen the light of day in years and cannot wait to be enjoyed once again!
I have a bike almost exactly like this in my personal collection and really enjoy riding it! The tires are 2 6 x1 3/8. They are vintage slightly newer SCHWINN tires and do hold air. The bike has chrome Schwinn S5 rims front and rear. 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 may need adjustment or possible cable replacement) DIMENSIONS The standover height is approx 30 1/2. The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 31. The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 21 1/2.
The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 21 1/2. The bike will accomadate most any rider comfortably.
The seat height is easy to adjust. NOTED FLAWS It is not 100% flawless but is not bad for its age! I LOVE the fact that this one has 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) These are desirable and ride nicely!
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.
