Description is an original VINTAGE SEPTEMBER 1965 (serial number is JA) men's SCHWINN TYPHOON AMERICAN made 24" bicycle. It is in the original and very appealing BRIGHT RED colored factory paint. If you like fairly clean original bikes, this may be a great bike for you. This bike was stored in the clean dry basement of a local bike shop for the past 20+ years. Consequently, this bike is in nice condition for its age. it was traded in many years ago, and never put up for sale. how cool is that! The tires are 24x1 3/4". The bike has Schwinn rims. I personally believe most EVERY SINGLE part on this bike is original! See all pics and be your own judge. Check the cool add on STREAMERS that fly in the wind! The bike is an original single speed with operable coaster brakes. This is a very original nice unmolested bicycle. 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. This is a good bike for slightly shorter person. The stand over height is approx 28". The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 26". The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 16 1/2'. The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 20". The bike will accomadate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust. The bike is rideable like it is and in nice condition. It is not 100% flawless but is nice! The paint looks good for a 30+ year old bike! (has chips etc). I love the original red seat. Stand out from the crowd and be the envy of people who see you riding by. 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! Sold as is simply because it is used. Handlebars have a very light bend. (you may not even notice) The fenders have typical dents. 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 NO RESERVE so bid 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. I try my very best to describe as accurately as possible and disclose anything I am aware of about the bike. Please keep in mind many of the bikes that I have listed have not been regularly ridden in a while.(not a bad thing) If you have any questions regarding any specific things concerning the bike, please ask before you bid. Keep in mind you are bidding 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. By bidding 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 auction listing. I want you to be excited about your new bike and hope you really enjoy your new vintage ride for years to come.
