This auction is for a Vintage 1960 Schwinn womens Hollywood middleweight bicycle. The Hollywood came in 4 different versions, 26" coaster brake, 24" coaster brake, 20" coaster brake, and a 2 or 3 speed version. This model is the 26" coaster brake. It also came in a variety of colors: Radiant red, blue, white and rose, and white and powder blue. This bike is the radiant red color.
The frame is in good shape, except for the rust on several parts of the frame where the paint had been scratched/worn. The paint on the fender in spots is starting to rust off (especially on the rear fender bridge). All the chrome is flaking off on the handlebars, stem, rims, hubs, and crank. Rideable, but it needs work.
