This is a vintage 1963 Varsity lightweight road racing bicycle with downtube shifting and 10 speeds.  This bicycle will need very little work as it has a full tune and clean by our professional service center.  This bicycle is all original, except that the for the tires and the bar tape is missing.  Also included is the generator light set.  The frame is electrowelded for strength and durability.  
This bike is mostly original with only the seat, tires, and brake hoods looking less than stock.  The hoods are Cane Creek.  Tires are an old IRC front with a Schwinn rear tire (this one might be stock, but that's fairly doubtfull.
