A great looking color on a Fastback! The bike has cool wide apehanger handlebars, blue Schwinn hand grips, chrome fenders front and rear, cool rear sissy bar, Schwinn bow pedals, "AS" (Arnold Schwinn) seat post clamp, and so much more! I dont know where you would find another like it! The bike is an original 5-speed STICK SHIFT with operable hand controlled brakes. Even has the cool "Overload tube" in place!
(those are often missing) Has the cool krate "mag" sprocket in place. The bike shifts and brakes.(It will need fine tune adjustment as this one has been in long term storage) The seat needs resto but is original! Has the Stingray tag on the rear as well as the reflector tab on the bottom.
(pan was painted blue long ago for some reason) This one has has Schwinn S5 front chrome rim and a Schwinn S5 Schwinn 5-speed rear. The tires are vintage Schwinn and do hold air. I dig the rear Schwinn Fastback Slik tire!This one has the correct original 5-speed chainguard. (previous owner thought the chrome looked cool and cleaned the paint off decades ago) Otherwise I believe this bike to be mostly original parts from when it was new. (See pics and be your own expert). A cool bike found locally recently that has not been owned by collectors! Now is your chance to own one of the COOLEST bikes EVER MADE! Make someone in your life happy with this one. This is a cool bike that you can enjoy for years! You RARELY find these bikes anymore!
They were all abused and thrown away back in the 1970s-80s. Finding one these days is a big challenge. They are very cool and people enjoy owning, riding, and displaying them!
Most people do not sell these bikes once they have them. Be the first to get this bike back out in the light and have fun with it! I believe this to be a fairly nice original unmolested bicycle unless otherwise noted. A great bike to display, ride and enjoy, or restore.
Would also be a great source of parts for your Schwinn Fastback boys bicycle! (would be a shame to see this used for parts but the choice is yours) You do not see these often! A great way to round out your collection or to start one! NOTED FLAWS This one was recently removed from very long term storage and cannot wait to be enjoyed once again! It is not 100% flawless but is ok for a 45+ year old boys bike!I LOVE original paint but has obvious chips scratches wear etc. (see pics) 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) NOTE! The SEAT POST is not frozen solid in place.
It moves side to side and turns but I cant get it out. Finding a STIK SHIFT Stingray that has been in long term storage is a rare find these days! I took lots of pics and have nothing to hide.
Please look closely for exact condition. This is a cool bike in the RIGHT color! The Fastback bikes ride much nicer than the cool KRATE bikes! (they look awesome but these ride much better) I hope you enjoy this!
These do not come along often! TAKE GOOD CARE OF IT AND THIS WILL ONLY GO UP IN VALUE! Sorry for the LONG description, these bikes really excite me. People will ENVY you when you ride by at a car show or on the street with this bike!
I try to list anything I notice with the bike. Keep in mind this is a vintage bike that has probably not been ridden for a while so it may need minor tuning, bearings greased, polishing, etc, These bikes are getting harder to find and are more popular than ever before! You will enjoy owning, riding, and displaying it for years! People always remember these bikes but seldom see them in person.
I take them in to have them packaged so they almost always arrive in the same condition as they 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. They are all available right now! I try my very best to describe as accurately as possible.
