You could be the proud owner of this vintage Schwinn Superior Bicycle. We are the second owner and this bicycle was purchased new in 1938. This bicycle has a lot of really nice original accessories. The rear carrier rack with spring clips, New Departure 2 speed hub and early style front Schwinn rim brake with the Schwinn Big Lever. This piece of American cycling history is looking for a new home and it could be yours.


The original paint has a few chips and scratches. Some of the parts have rust but most of this will clean up. Original seat has a few scuffs. Nothing has been done to this bicycle and we would recommend a full tune-up before riding.

This bicycle is being sold as is, please see photographs for details.
