Post-war America was a great period for the bicycle riding family, and this is a good example of why. You are purchasing a 1965 Schwinn World Traveler, made on March 4th of that year. It's 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 bullet 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 one of these on your bike, and they're great conversation starters.
Nearly 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 purple and pearl paint job (beautiful!) is chipped in spots, but the lettering and details are unmarred. The north road handlebars and fenders are in good shape and the chrome shines. The pedals do not look original, and the seat needs to be repositioned or replaced. The wheels are in good shape, but the whitewall tires are starting to crack some.
Just a tune up and some updates and this bike will be ready to cruise!
