  Description


Here is an original VINTAGE  (1980s? serial number is GM673433 Head badge number looks to be 1366, maybe 1986) mens SCHWINN SPRINT tall mens 10-speed road bike with 27″ wheels.  It is in the original and very appealing RED colored factory paint. If you like better quality original paint vintage road bikes, this may be a great bike for you. With the insanely high price of gas (and the economy being bad) now is the time to ride a cool vintage bike!

*This bike has a cool mens butted tubing road bike frame and forks with original paint and decals, aluminum 3-piece cranks, drop style handlebars, black hand grip pads, aluminum neck, aluminum twin stick shifters, Schwinn road bike seat/saddle, rat trap pedals, Suntour Hero derailleur, and more! This is a better quality Schwinn Approved lightweight racer model!

*This one was sold new at a local legendary Schwinn Shop called Wolf Cyclery in Sheboygan, WI!

*Remember that the Schwinn LeTour, Continental and Varsity road bikes? EVERYONE wanted one back in the day! Now you almost never see them! Bring back some fond memories and create some great new ones as well!

*The tires are 27×1 1/4″. They are old vintage tires and do hold air. The bike has chrome Schwinn FEMCO rims front and rear!

*The bike is an original TEN SPEED and the gears do operate. The hand controlled brakes are operable as well. (this one has been in long term storage and may need adjustment or imaginable cable replacement)

*DIMENSIONS The standover height is approx 31″. The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 31 1/2″. The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 21″. The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 21 1/2″. The bike will accomadate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust.

*NOTED FLAWS It is not 100% flawless but is ok for its age! I LOVE original paint bikes! These bikes were expensive when new and you do not see them incessantly! Paint shows age but has survived better than many. The decals show some age.  The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality. Both wheels have a slight wobble when you spin them. (most every used bike out there seems to)  If you click on any of the pics they get very large to show lots of detail. Please take a look at all pics for exact condition and email with any questions before you bid.

*This appears to be a fairly nice original unmolested bicycle unless otherwise noted. A great bike to ride on relaxing days through the park or to the beach. Also would be a nice item to display in a shop, restaurant, rec room, sports bar, etc. Stand out from the crowd and be the envy of people who see you riding by. People will enjoy seeing you on your vintage bike! A great classic bike at a great price

*Why not ride a bike? You will live longer, feel better, and save $$$ vs of the insanely high cost of gasoline. If you are looking for a fun bike to ride and enjoy this may be it! A nice bike to cruise the beach or your local park!   Priced way less than a dime store bike that wont be around 5 years from now, much less 30+ years like this one! Please give this bike a good home and DON’T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY!  Classic bikes are very cool because not everyone on the block has one! People love to see and talk about and ride these classic bikes! They are more popular now than ever before!

*This may be a great Birthday or other special holiday gift for someone! It is never too soon to think ahead and get someone something they may really like!! This starts reasonably with ABSOLUTELY NO RESERVE so bid early and don’t miss out! These are getting to be hard to find in any condition and to my knowledge, have not been reproduced.

*Sold as is simply because it is used. I try my very best to describe as accurately as imaginable and disclose anything I am aware of about the bike. PLEASE NOTE that many of the bikes I list have listed have been in long term storage and have not been steadily ridden in a even as.(not a bad thing) They may need standard tuning, greasing, may have old tires, surface rust etc. I try to be as honest as imaginable and never want to disappoint anyone. If you have any questions regarding any specific things concerning the bike, please feel feel to ASK via emali before you bid. Keep in mind you are bidding on a 30+ year old bike that is not a brand new bicycle so it may need minor tuning, cables or cable adjustment, if tires are original, they may or may not have sidewall cracks, etc. I try to be as honest as I will be able to and disclose anything I know about the bike. I want you to be happy with your new vintage purchase but please understand the bike may need some tlc to be road ready.

*By bidding please take into account that you are purchasing a used bicycle that may or may not need tlc. If I notice an issue, I at all times try to note it in the auction listing. I want you to be excited about your new bike and hope you really enjoy your new vintage ride for years to come. Be sure to take a look at all pics and email with any questions you may have before you bid regarding condition, mechanical items, etc.

*NOTE REGARDING SHIPPING YOUR BIKE Your bike will be partially disassembled and shipped to you in a factory bicycle box. We try our best to package the bicycles carefully to avoid any unnecessary damage caused in transit alternatively, scratches etc are imaginable to happen in transit which we have no control over once shipped. We try to package well so the bike arrives to you in the same condition as it left us.

*SHIPPING COSTS: Fed Ex, USPS, as well as UPS have recently raised their shipping rates due to the higher cost of fuel. Sorry for the slight increase in shipping costs.

*PLEASE NOTE, I WILL NO LONGER BE SHIPPING FULL SIZE BIKES OUTSIDE OF THE USA. This is due to the high cost of shipping and customs. If you are anywhere outside the lower 48 States including Alaska, Hawaii, or Puerto Rico contact me before you bid as shipping will cost more. Fed Ex just increased the rates. I will be able to ship to AK, HI, or PR for approx $179.95. This is a 10+ day service and includes packing. This i the best deal I will be able to get to ship to these locations. Please do not bid if this is unacceptable. I at all times try to keep things as reasonable as I will be able to. If you have a friend or family member in the lower 48 states, I will be able to ship to them for the amount stated in the listing. THANK YOU!

*I have lots of other rare bicycles, bike parts and bike accessories, as well as vintage car parts and unique items on auction this week! Check them out! Combine items to save yourself $$$ on shipping! Email with any questions you may have.
