You could be the proud owner of this vintage blue Schwinn Varsity road bicycle. This bicycle was handmade in the U.S.A. If you go by the date code on the headbadge it was made Feb 21st 1985, but if you go by the date code on the parts it's an '84. If it's an '84 it was made in Chicago, if it's a '85 it was made in Greenville, Mississippi. Either way this bicycle is ready to roll and looking for a new home.


This bicycle has all of its original parts! A few scratches in the top tube with some minor surface corrosion, but in great working condition with no major damage.

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 83 point inspection by the owner. Finally the owner rides 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 bicycle is being sold as is, please see photographs for details.
