Here is an original MAY 1963 VINTAGE (serial number is E3) mens SCHWINN beach cruiser bicycle with 26" wheels. I THINK this one is either a Corvette or a Tiger model that has a Typhoon decal on the chainguard. It is in the original and very appealing radiant red colored factory paint. If you like cool unrestored original bikes, 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, original chainguard, cruiser style seat, wide cruiser handlebars, full fenders, front carrier RACk, and more! This one has the chrome kickstand, seat post clamp, and fender braces. (details only found on more deluxe bicycles) Check out the cool large caliper Schwinn Approved brakes!
*The tires are 26x1 3/4". They are vintage tires and do hold air. The bike has chrome rims front and rear.
*The bike is an original THREE SPEED with operable hand controlled brakes. (may need adjustment or possible cable replacement) Please note, it operates as a single speed right now. The little chain to shift the gears does not thread into the hub. (will need tlc)
*DIMENSIONS The standover 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 accomadate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust.
*NOTED FLAWS The bike would need a total resto for show or enjoy it in its current "hot rod" or "rat rod" type patina. (that looks is more popular now than ever and people love it!) The paint looks fair for a 50+ year old bike! (has lots of chips scratches etc) The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality. The bike has 2 slightly different style pedals. Both wheels have a wobble when you spin them. A great "fixer upper" type bike with lots of potential. 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.
