You could be the proud owner of this vintage Cardinal red Schwinn Speedster middleweight bicycle. Made in Chicago in Dec. of 1973. This carbon steel diamond style frame was meant for cruising around the neighborhood or town. Single speed and coaster brake make this bike very easy to operate. This bicycle is looking for a new home and it could be yours.


Bicycle has some chips in the paint from its years of enjoyment, and some surface corrosion where paint is missing but is otherwise in good overall condition and free of major damage including bends and cracks.

This bike has been fully tuned by a shop mechanic with many years of experience. Then the bike was given a thorough eighty three point inspection by the owner. Finally the owner rides the bicycle checking steering, and braking. 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.
