NOW THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!!
Here is an original VINTAGE (I BELIEVE approx 1952 era but does not have the serial number tag) men's MONARK "FIRESTONE" SUPER DELUXE beach cruiser bicycle with 26" wheels. I got this beauty just like you see it. If you like amazing TOP OF THE LINE original bikes, this may be a great bike for you. It was always stored inside in a clean dry area. With the insanely high price of gas (and the economy being bad) now is the time to ride a cool vintage bike!*
*This bike was restored as you can see and is an awesome rider!
*This bike has a cool mens cruiser style frame, factory frame mounted TANK, cool SUPER DELUXE chainguard, Firestone head badge, truss rod forks, newer cruiser style seat, wide cruiser handlebars, art deco style neck, full fenders, super cool rear reflector, cool pedals, (I believe Schwinn) and more! I believe this bike originally had a fender mounted headlight. A very cool part of this bike.... it was made by Monark but sold under the "Firestone" label. This means this bicycle was sold new at a Firestone tires dealer! How cool is that?! (Imagine the cool cars, signs, bicycles, etc this one has seen over its lifetime)
*This possibilities are endless for this one! You can display it just like it is, restore it, or have a blast riding it in its current "hot rod" type look. People love it! How much fun would it be to ride this one at a car show or cruise! Everyone will ask where you EVER found such a cool ride! To me, this is the COOLEST hot rod style bike you could EVER ask for!
*A Schwinn Black Phantom is a RARE bike.... you will see a lot of them before you ever see another one of these! For the person who can appreciate cool RARE bikes!
*The tires are 26x2.125". They are newer replacement tires and do hold air. The bike has newer replacement shiney chrome rims front and rear.
*The bike is an original SINGLE SPEED with coaster brakes. (pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike)
*DIMENSIONS The stand over height is approx 31". The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 28 1/2". 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 21 1/2". The bike will accommodate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust.
*Why do you want this bike? You could go out and buy an "unrestored" bike for $500+. Take it all apart, have it sandblasted, primed, painted, rechrome things, buy new parts, and invest a TON of time into it! OR you could enjoy this one for a whole lot less and enjoy it right away! The choice is yours!
*NOTED FLAWS I got this bike just like you see it. It has obviously been "restored" and repainted. The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality. I was told all the bearings were greased etc but I did not disassemble to verify. If you are a "nut and bolt purist" this is not the bike for you. The way it is bulit and looks this is the perfect definition (to me) of a "hot rod" bicycle. I LOVE IT and hope you do too! This one is a real head turner! If you click on any of the pics they get very large to show lots of detail. Please take a look at all pics for exact condition and email with any questions before you offer.
*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? You will live longer, feel better, and save $$$ vs of the insanely high cost of gasoline. 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!! This starts reasonably with ABSOLUTELY so offer early and don't miss out! These are getting to be hard to find in any condition and to my knowledge, have not been reproduced.
*Sold as is simply because it is used. I try my very best to describe as accurately as possible and disclose anything I am aware of about the bike. 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. If you have any questions regarding any specific things concerning the bike, please feel feel to ASK via emali before you offer. Keep in mind you are offerding on a 30+ year old bike that is not a brand new bicycle so it may need minor tuning, cables or cable adjustment, if tires are original, they may or may not have sidewall cracks, etc. I try to be as honest as I can and disclose anything I know about the bike. I want you to be happy with your new vintage purchase but please understand the bike may need some tlc to be road ready.
*By offerding please understand that you are purchasing a used bicycle that may or may not need tlc. If I notice an issue, I always try to note it in the sale listing. I want you to be excited about your new bike and hope you really enjoy your new vintage ride for years to come. Be sure to check out all pics and email with any questions you may have before you offer regarding condition, mechanical items, etc.
*NOTE REGARDING SHIPPING YOUR BIKE Your bike will be partially disassembled and shipped to you in a factory bicycle box. We try our best to package the bicycles carefully to avoid any unnecessary damage caused in transit however, scratches etc are possible to happen in transit which we have no control over once shipped. We try to package well so the bike arrives to you in the same condition as it left us.
