1955 Schwinn Tiger Middleweight Bicycle

More Views


This is a vintage 1955 Schwinn Tiger model F10 3 speed middleweight bicycle.  This cantilever framed bicycle is in great shape with only a bit rust where the bicycle was scratched.  The red 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 not been overhauled and will need a professional mechanic to bring it back to life as daily rider.  
The bike looks all original except for (maybe) the seat.
The tires hold air, the seat is springy, and the bars are shiny.  What more can you ask?
This bicycle was offered in a few versions, womens 24" and 26" and mens 24" and 26".
Colors offered:  Opal red, blue, green, and black enamel.
