1953 Schwinn World Traveler Women's Bicycle

More Views


Post-war America was a great period for the bicycle riding family, and this is a good example of why.  You will be purchasing an early May 1953 Schwinn World Traveler, a women's bicycle with some very cool features that exemplify Schwinn's dedication to bringing bike technology to the American family.  One important thing to highlight: the Miller bottle generator for the headlight and tail light.  Forget your dynohub generator.  These bottle generators are considered by many to give a stronger charge, and they look so cool.  You will get comments with that on your bike, and it's a great conversation starter.
All original parts on this.  Trigger shifter for the three-speed Sturmey Archer hub, Weinmann brake levers, mattress saddle with black vinyl covering, and a kick stand.  The original red and white paint job is worn and rusted, and the lettering is obscured in places.  Fenders are rusted, and the north road handlebar is scraped.  The pedals should probably be replaced.  The wheels are rusted, but the tires are in decent shape.
