This auction is for a Vintage 1955 Schwinn Tiger model F10 3 speed middleweight bicycle. This cantilever framed bicycle is in great shape with virtually no rust whatsoever. The green paint even has retained its original luster. The fenders are a little rough with scratches, dents, and dings, but they are original.
This bike has been mostly overhauled by a professional mechanic and is a definite rider.
Other than the seat and maybe the chainguard, everything looks original.
Not sure if the chainguard is the right one for the bike, right color, but it has the clip for a cable - maybe a women's chainguard?
This bicycle was offered in a few versions, womens 24" and 26" and mens 24" and 26".
