More Views


You could be the proud owner of this pink and white Schwinn World balloon tire bicycle. This bicycle has a rare pastel colorway! This steel bicycle was handmade in the U.S.A. in 1952. Great for any collection or a retro ride with friends. This bicycle is looking for a new home and it could be yours.


This bicycle is in good original condition. The paint is a rare color with its fair share of scratches. The seat has a tear in the side edge. The chrome has little rust and pitting but is starting fade. The front fender light is missing the top and front bezel, someone "modified" the light at some point with another light. Sweet Mickey Mouse bell! The Schwinn World head badge is in great shape. This bicycle appears to be rideable, but we would recommend a tune up or safety check over by a qualified mechanic before riding.

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