1973 SCHWINN TYPHOON CAMPUS GREEN MENS VINTAGE BICYCLE AMERICAN CORVETTE S7. Here is an original VINTAGE January 1973 (serial number is AJ) men's Schwinn TYPHOON beach cruiser bicycle with 26 wheels. It is in the original and very appealing Campus GREEN colored factory paint. If you like COOL original USA built bikes of the time, 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 cruiser style frame and forks with original paint and decals, original screen chainguard, Schwinn cruiser style seat, wide cruiser handlebars, Schwinn hand grips, full fenders, (have dents) Schwinn pedals, and more! I absolutely love the Schwinn middleweight series of bikes of this era! (Panther, Jaguar, American, Corvette, Typhoon, Hollywood, etc) This one appears to be basically all original parts from when it was new. (see pics and be your own judge) This one appears to be basically all original parts from when it was new!
(see pics and be your own judge). I dont recall EVER seeing a 1973 Schwinn Typhoon in Campus Green. It is offered in the 73 Schwinn catalog but Ive never seen one. The color was not used in 74.It is a great color on these bikes and you do not see it often! The tires are 26x1 3/4. They are vintage slightly newer replacement tires and do hold air. The bike has chrome Schwinn S-7 rims front and rear with a Bendix rear hub.
The bike is an original single speed with coaster brakes. (pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike) NOTE, the bike has been in very long term storage.
The hub goes into a freewheel mode and will need to be regreased/overhauled before riding. This bike came from long term storage! It cannot wait to be enjoyed once again!
DIMENSIONS The stand over height is approx 30 1/2. 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 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 not bad for its age! I love original paint bikes! Has chips scratches etc but is a GREAT color for this bike! 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).
OVERALL this is a cool USA built bike in a HARD TO FIND great color! I hope you love it! 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.
