You could be the proud owner of this vintage Schwinn Varsity road bicycle. Made in Chicago in October of 1974 this "Lime" green colored Varsity was the popular choice among girls who wanted features normally found on more expensive bikes. With a steel frame, "Twin-Stik" 10 speed gear controls, Schwinn Approved comfort foam saddle, 27 x 1/4 gumwall tires, drop handlebars, and dual position caliper brake levers. This bike is looking for a new home and it could be yours.


The bike has only a few chips and scratches in paint, and is in good condition for year that is was manufactured. The bike is 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.
