Up for sale w BiN. One Bicycle: A 1949 Vintage Skip Tooth Schwinn Admiral Men's Full Size Adult Cruiser Bicycle.
Beautiful used and loved barn-find patina! Serial #: F067041 [bottom of crank housing]. Ridable currently, but I did not tune it up, so in need of a tune-up. I took it for a really short ride. Bicycle has no dents in frame.
About 3 rather small dents on rim side (see photos). Some rust on chrome, rims. One of the pedals is missing the 2 reflectors and the other pedal has a little corner of rubber torn off (se photos blow this text). Paint flaking and some dents on the fenders (see photos).
The crank, chain and rear cog are skip tooth. Seat is not original and some years later (50s). It seems that the rims were possibly painted gold many years back.
Also red pin stripe stickers added to the gold rims. Rear Hub: New Departure model D.Bike was painted black by previous owner, was red and white. Tires: hold air, are as old as the bicycle. They do not feel dry, but I can see little cracks throughout, use current tires at your own risk. The tires are two different brands, but same size, color and psi.
Different tread, but they match enough imo. Penney's Foremost Custom Nylon 26x2.125 22-35 pounds of pressure tire Made in USA. General Silent Saftey 26x2.125 NY Cen-Cord by The General Tire and Rubber Company Made in USA 22-35 pounds of pressure. Please ask any questions and i will respond promptly.
