You are buying a vintage 1976 Varsity Bicentennial model, lightweight road racing bicycle with downtube shifting and 10 speeds. This bicycle will need no work at all as it has a basic tune and complete detail and clean by our professional service center. This bicycle is all original, including the tires and the red bar tape. Also included is an original generator Schwinn light set - front and rear lights.
The frame is electro-welded for strength and durability.
"Schwinn's most popular 10 speed bicycle." "In its class... its a winner"
This is the special Bicentennial paint in white, with stars and stripes details. The white, like most of the Schwinn white, is very weak. The paint has chips and mars, and some scratches, that show the clay colored primer underneath. Several decals are also scratches and partly missing. Not perfect paint. Very shiny parts, rather weak paint.
