Here is an original VINTAGE APRIL 1971 (serial number is DG) men's 2-speed SCHWINN TYPHOON beach cruiser bicycle with 26" wheels. It is in the original and very appealing BRIGHT RED colored factory paint. If you like relatively clean original 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!*The Typhoon bikes are great looking and fun to ride! The style of the frame looks great! I like the wide beach cruiser style handlebars. This bike appears to be nearly 100% original. (SEE PICS and be your own judge) It has been in very long term storage and cannot wait to be enjoyed once again!*The tires are 26x1 3/4". They are vintage tires and do hold air. The front is a Schwinn Superior. The rear is a vintage Kelly Springfield tire. The bike has chrome Schwinn S-7 rims front and rear.*The bike is an original TWO-SPEED AUTOMATIC Bendix Kickback. You pedal backwards to shift from low to high or high to low and coaster brakes. (pedal backwards slightly to stop) PLEASE NOTE, the bike has been in long term storage and the hub will need to be greased/overhauled to shift properly. It goes into a freewheel type mode. The little effort you put into this will be WELL worth your time! They are a BLAST to ride!*DIMENSIONS The stand over height is approx 30 1/4". The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 28". The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 18 3/4". The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 22 1/4". The bike will accomadate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust.*NOTED FLAWS It is not 100% flawless but is relatively nice! The paint looks relatively good for a 40+ year old bike! It does have chips etc. The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality. The rim has a couple small side dings and the front rim is a missing a spoke. The guard has a fresh Typhoon decal. No trying to nit-pick the bike, I just like to be honest. Please take a look at all pics for exact condition and email with any questions before you offer. *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 so offer 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 possible 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 regularly ridden in a while.(not a bad thing) They may need standard tuning, greasing, may have old tires, surface rust etc. I try to be as honest as possible 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 offer. Keep in mind you are offerding 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 can 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 offerding please understand that you are purchasing a used bicycle that may or may not need tlc. If I notice an issue, I always try to note it in the sale 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 check out all pics and email with any questions you may have before you offer 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 however, scratches etc are possible 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 TIME I ship bikes on Tuesdays and Fridays via Fed Ex. Generally, if I receive your payment by 1 pm central time on Monday, it allows me enough time to get your bike to the shop for packing and to ship along with the Tuesday AM shipment.

If paid after that time, please expect it to go out with the next shipment.*PLEASE NOTE, I WILL NO LONGER BE SHIPPING FULL SIZE BIKES OUTSIDE OF THE USA.
