Print run limited to 1118 hand-numbered copies! Soft-cover bound. 8.5" x 11". A ridiculous amount of information and insight. Scads of pictures. Scads of schematic diagrams. This book covers all the different Schwinn models, not just the currently collectible ones. This is the single best reference book on Schwinn bikes ever assembled.
