More Views


You could be the proud owner of this used vintage Schwinn American middleweight cruiser bicycle. This bike was made by Schwinn of Chicago in February of 1952. This classic American Schwinn is looking for a new home and it could be yours.


This single speed, coaster brake equipped bike appears to be all original with the exception of the saddle. The blue paint is quite faded and there is some surface corrosion throughout the bike. The wheels will need to be trued and are corroded as well.

This bicycle has not been checked over by a mechanic and we would recommend a full tune-up before riding.

This bike is being sold as-is. Please see photographs for details.
