The seat is original and quite respectable for its age! It has the original chrome Schwinn S2 rear rim with a Bendix 76 hub and a chrome Schwinn S7 front rim.
Both front and rear tires do hold air. The front is a Schwinn. The rear is a slightly newer vintage 20x2.125 knobby replacement tire.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. NOTED FLAWS I got this one basically like you see it. The paint looks fair for a 40+ year old boys bike! (has obvious chips scratches etc, most boys bikes of this era are trashed or repainted) 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) Im guessing the apehanger handlebars were replaced at some point.
The bikes of this era have NFL football colors! Green Bay Packers Green and Yellow, Detriot Lions Blue and Silver, and the Washington Redskins red and yellow! 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.
