Sharp Mens Vintage Schwinn Jaguar Mark VI Tank Bike Cruiser, A Solid Survivor in nice condition. 26 Schwinn Westwind/Kenda Whitewall Tires on S-7 Rims. Original Schwinn Steel Horned Tank.
Single Speed Bendix Coaster Currently on the Bike. I will be including a Bendix Automatic 3 Red Stripe, 2 Speed Kickback Coaster Brake Hub. So if you wanted to convert the bike to a 2 speed kickback, just replace the single speed hub with the Automatic 2Spd.However, the 2 Speed red stripe hub will probably need to be rebuilt, or at least disassembled, cleaned of grease and reassembled as the gearing slips, and feels like old/thick grease inside. So a simple tune up and youll have a 2 speed Jaguar. So Heres a surviving and pretty Rare 1965 Schwinn Jaguar Mark VI Tank Bike thats ready to cruise, needs nothing to start hitting the streets, enjoying all the attention this generates, people love looking at the bike and sharing their Schwinn stories when out and about. I have been riding this cruiser 3-5 miles a week through the summer, fun and a perma-grin kinda ride. Pretty much all original, besides the nice wide beach cruiser handlebars and few add-ons. This Jaguar cruises nice for its age with no issues. However this is a vintage bike, not new, may feel like a vintage cruiser, which is why we love riding these old Schwinns. The bike is mechanically sound, rides nice for its age, no major wobbling or issues, however there are a few loose spokes in the rear that if adjusted, would true up the wheel, though rides good as is with faint hiccup.
Pedals good, bearings all feel good, the Bendix brake system works good and steering is smooth. Original black paint still shines for the most part. It does have some expected sporadic chips/scuffs/fade but not too bad for the age, could be touched up pretty easily as all appear superficial, but still sharp as is. The original Schwinn horn tank is nice and solid, no corrosion, includes the horn mechanism, clean inside the tank. The paint is original and shows some age/wear with paint scuff/fade perhaps, some appear to have been touched up at some point, still has pretty good original lettering and nice chrome.
There is one ding on the front right from what appears couldve been the front rack hitting it, but is small. The bike has nice clean chrome throughout for the most part, though not perfect, some faint peppering here/there but no pitting or corrosion and would clean to shine. The white has some paint chip/fade. Has nice original solid straight chaingaurd with nice original graphics. But still looks good, could easily be touched up.
Nice clean original Schwinn Tubular S-7 chrome rims that spin smooth, though like most its age, not perfect but definitely good as is, no wobbling but faint hiccup hardly felt, adjust spokes to true up. Both are nice and clean, shine bright and include good original Schwinn Westwind tire on the front, newer Kenda on the rear, many miles left on both, both hold air good. Includes the nice clean chrome rear/front racks with faint oxidation spots, clean original chrome fenders with some aging but no damage, clean wide vintage beach cruiser handlebars with Original Schwinn stem.
Also includes nice 1970s Schwinn puff handle grips, modern coffe cup holder, vintage Schwinn Speedometer that needs a cable, vintage generator run headlight and nice original Schwinn S spring saddle with some aging. Clean clover crankset with good original pedals. Overall this Jaguar has been taken care of over the decades, mainly stored inside. Looks sharp, rides nice and really gets the attention, a real fun liberating ride.
