Here is an original ANTIQUE 1955 (serial number is T004771) SCHWINN TOWN AND COUNTRY 2-person tandem bicycle with 26" wheels. It is in the original and very appealing YELLOW colored factory paint. This is SO cool! I have NEVER seen a Schwinn bike from the 1950s in yellow! If you like cool unrestored 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!
*Have you EVER ridden a tandem? If not, I highly recommend it! It is SO MUCH fun and good exercise for both people on the bike! It is also very addicting and a fun way to meet people. This would make for a very memorable WEDDING, Birthday, or Christmas gift!
*I believe this bike to be nearly 100% original parts from when it was new! (see pics and be your own judge)
*This bike is awesome! I love the wide handlebars. It has the coolest and largest Schwinn script grips I have ever seen! Check out the cool Schwinn Tandem headbadge! I love the shape and style of the frame. It has all 4 of its Schwinn bow pedals and 3-piece cranks.
*The tires are 26x1 3/4". They are vintage Schwinn Tandem tires and do hold air. The bike has chrome SCHWINN S-7 rims front and rear. It has the heavy duty tandem spokes and a Bendix 70 rear hub. Check out the AWESOME heavy duty "Whizzer" drum brakes FRONT AND REAR!!!
*The wheels alone are very valuable and would be cool on a motorbike or regular cruiser bike. It would be a shame to use this bike for parts but the wheels alone are rare and very valuable and useful.
*The bike is an original SINGLE SPEED with a freewheel rear wheel. It has very responsive heavy duty Schwinn DRUM brakes front and rear! (may need minor adjustment)
*NOTED FLAWS It is not 100% flawless but is relatively ok for its age! The paint looks fairly ok for a 50+ year old bike but has scratches, chips, etc The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality. Overall it has survived the years relatively well but is not perfect or new. It would need a restoration for show or have fun with it as it is. A couple of the grips have cracks. It has a newer chainguard on the one side. The bow pedals are worn. Fenders have dents. Not trying to nit-pick the bike, I just like to be honest. These bikes were built to LAST long and stand the test of time! Please take a look at all pics for exact condition and email with any questions before you offer.
*SHIPPING! Almost nobody on is willing to ship a 2-person bicycle. I am offering FREE local pickup (my preferred choice) or can ship in TWO packages via FED EX to the lower 48 USA STATES. The shipping cost listed includes packing and shipping to your door via Fed Ex. If you are outside of the lower 48 US States, I CANNOT ship to you due to the LARGE size of the bike. THANK YOU!
*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.
