My friend knows I am obsessed with SCHWINN. So when he told me about an Alloy SS, THAT HAD BEEN SITING IN A COVERED BARN HERE IN WALES I HAD TO RESCUE HER..... SHE as you possibly know the Alloy SS are NOT tube steel like the early cruisers, they are aluminium alloy SO MUCH LIGHTER and DO NOT RUST. Unfortunately the only chromed steel is NOT as good as the earlier SCHWINN QUALITY..
I AM OPEN TOO OFFERS ABOVE ASKING PRICE :-)
I have run out of room in my shed as I have a prostock a super stock a Joey Garcia and a few Haro.
I love this bike BUT I am into BMX more PLUS I LIVE IN WALES, it is quite difficult to CRUISE up and down the VALLEYS.
I have given her the love and care that she needed, She has been TOTALY stripped,
DE GREASED and given a FULL SERVICE. The wheels had old grease so the hubs have had both axles out and Re greased and now run super smooth, FRONT AND BACK.
The back wheel HAS A BUCKLE... but as there is a back pedal brake you could get away without fixing it, or you could take it to your bike shop... Hence low start price..
..The front original PROMAX brake is super smooth as is the REAR SHIMANO back pedal BRAKE, I have found some nice retro hand grips, not Schwinn but they look the part. You can choose black or white (please let me know)
unfortunately THE SEAT WAS MISSING. ULTRA RARE NOW. and in my opinion WAY TOO WIDE....
I have replaced it with a brand new faux leather RETRO LOOK TRIPLE SPRUNG SADDLE, REALLY COMFORTABLE...
I HAVE ALSO PURCHASED A NICE CHROME RETRO DYNAMO LIGHT SYSTEM. There is also a SCHWINN BELL all to add that touch of SCHWINN CRUISER SPICE.
THERE ARE A FEW SMALL AREAS IN THE NORMAL PLACES WHERE THE PAINT HAS COME AWAY (a few chips I have tried to photo all of them for you to see close up)
ALL IN ALL THE PAINT IS IN GREAT CONDITION.
I don't think she has had many miles (not surprising with the VALLEYS here in Wales)
SORRY BUT THE WHITE WALLS WERE MISSING TOO,,, but if you are interested in getting some new white wall balloon tyre
Here is a great link. ("columbia white wall tires 26") good price for a pair around £30
THE TYRES ON IT ARE made by GREEN TYRE.com
They are called HEDGEHOG... And are around £35 each..They are puncture proof.... Here is the tech spec:
Greentyres were invented in 1992 by the Company's founder and Chairman Colin Scarsi, as a solution to the problem of traditional rubber bicycle tyres going flat.
Greentyre overcame previous substitute technology by using modern polyurethanes derived from those commonly used in sports shoes to form a tyre of regular consistency that would never go flat. Existing centrifugal casting technology was honed by Greentyre to give high output manufacturing capability that has yet to be rivalled.
Greentyre's process is clean, non carcinogenic, is CFC free and releases no harmful toxins to the atmosphere. The products produced are long lasting, never fail and can be recycled making them truly earth friendly.
Not sure if there is any thing more to add except there is some rust spots to the crank see photos
SHE IS A WONDERFUL SCHWINN CRUISER 26" ALLOY SS
