Schwinn 1935 Flying Star Balloon Tire Bicycle

More Views


This auction is for a Vintage Flying Star womens bicycle.  This is a step through design balloon tire bicycle.  From the research we have done, we have narrowed the year of manufacture to about 1935.  This bicycle seems mostly original, except for the Elgin chainguard.  The tires are good and hold air.  Its a rider, and mostly needs work on the cosmetics - chrome is rough on the bars/stem, paint is rough.  The seat is good, but has a tear on the top.  Hubs and wheels are good.  Seatpost is free and was greased.  Notice the holes in the rear fender for a skirt/dress guard.
Great bike, excellent for a full restore.
Original paint seems a dark blue with cream accents
