 Description SUMMER IS ! With the insanely high price of gas now is the time to ride a cool vintage bike! is an original JUNE 1972 VINTAGE (serial number is FH) ladies 26" Schwinn Varsity bicycle. It is in the original and very appealing SIERRA BROWN colored factory paint. If you like clean original bikes, this may be a great bike for you. It was always stored inside in a clean dry area. Check out the nice matching handlebar tape. The bike has an upgraded comfort seat. Otherwise, I believe all parts on this bike to be original. It has sweet shiney chrome fender! It even has the plastic paint protector on the bottom by the shift cable! These usually got thrown out when the bike was new!
*The tires are 26x1 3/8". They are vintage tires and do hold air. The bike has chrome rims front and rear.
*The bike is an original TEN SPEED and it the gears do operate. The hand controlled brakes are operable as well. (may need adjustment as it has been in long term storage)
*DIMENSIONS The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 30 1/2". The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 19 1/4". The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 21". The bike will accomadate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust.
*NOTED FLAWS It is not 100% flawless but is nice! The paint looks very good for a 30+ year old bike! (not flawless but one of the nicest you could ever ask for) The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality. T is a spot on the front rim about 10" long the chrome is pitted. (must be from storage)
*This is a nice original 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. 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 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.
*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 keep in mind many of the bikes I list 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 feel feel to ASK via emali 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 ...
