You could be the proud owner of this vintage 3 speed Schwinn bicycle. Built in Chicago, USA in March of 1956 this collectible bike features a 3 speed Sturmey Archer drive train and full chrome fenders. Unfortunately we are unsure if this bike was originally a Corvette or Tiger due to the current parts on the bike. This classic bicycle is looking for a new home and it could be yours.

Bike Condition:

This bike is in good overall condition and free of corrosion, bends and cracks. The red paint is a bit faded but has nice color still with some marks and scratches throughout the bike.

This bike has been tuned and fully overhauled right down to re-greasing and packing the bearings (hubs, bottom bracket and headset) by a seasoned shop mechanic with many years of experience. The bike has also been given a thorough 83 point inspection by the owner of this bicycle shop. The owner ride the bicycle in every gear checking steering braking and shifting. After you receive this bicycle, minimal adjustments will be need for it to be ready to ride.
