You could be the proud owner of this vintage "Opaque Blue" Schwinn Continental bicycle. Made in Chicago, IL in October of 1973. Whether its a ride to the pool, a daily ride along the bikeway, or a long ride over the country road, the Continental is unmatched in its class. This bicycle is ready to roll and looking for a new home.


This bicycle has low mileage and a few chips in the paint, but is in GREAT working condition and free of major damage including bends and cracks.

This bike has been tuned and fully overhauled right down to re-greasing and packing of the bearings (hubs, bottom bracket and headset) by a shop mechanic with many years of experience. Then the bike was given a thorough inspection by the owner. Finally the owner rode the bicycle in every gear 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.
