You could be the proud owner of this vintage Schwinn Continental road bicycle. This Electro-forged diamond style frame of 16 gauge 1010 carbon steel was handmade in Chicago Il. in December of 1979. Featuring easy to use stem mounted "Twin-Stik" shifters and dual position brake levers. Whether being used for a ride around town, or a long ride on a country road, this is the bicycle for you.


Bicycle has a few scratches here and there , but in good working condition and free of major damage such as 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. The bike has also been given a thorough 83 point inspection by the owner of this bicycle shop. The owner rides the bicycle in every gear checking steering, braking, and shifting. After you receive this bicycle, minimal adjustments will be needed to be ready to ride.

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