You could be the proud owner of this vintage "Kool Lemon" Schwinn Continental road bicycle. This steel bicycle was handmade in Chicago Il. in August of 1972. Whether it's a trip to the pool, the daily after-work ride, or the long ride along the country road, the Schwinn Continental brings a new dimension to riding. Featuring "twin-Stik" gear shifters, dual position brakes, and quick release hubs. This very large bicycle is looking for a new home and it could be yours.


Bicycle has some scratches in paint, and some minor surface rust where paint is missing. The bike is free of major damage including cracks and bends. This bike has been fully tuned by a seasoned shop mechanic with many years of experience. Then the bike was test ridden and given a thorough eighty three point inspection by the owner. Finally the owner rides the bicycle checking steering, braking, and shifting. After you receive this bicycle minimal adjustments and assembly will be needed to be ready to ride.

This bike is being sold as is, please see photographs for details.
