This auction is for a Vintage Schwinn built balloon tire bicycle. No known model, but it is very similar to the Schwinn built Liberty's - the bike made for Chicago Cycle supply. This bike is missing the original front light and chainguard. Definitely pre-war - skiptooth, clamped kickstand, forward facing dropout adjusters, larger springer leather saddle. This bicycle was repainted at some time and pinstriped (pinstriped rather poorly with some type of tape). Definitely rideable, but needs at least a wheel tune - rear spokes are loose. The original saddle needs some work - especially a recover and the left side spring has broken off. Lots of silver spray on the rims.
