1973 Schwinn Varsity

(Click for full photo)

1973 Schwinn Varsity 1973 Schwinn Varsity. All original except for the tires(I think). This is the first older bicycle that I have purchased, and for less that $6.00 it's a steal. All I had to do was put a new tube in the front tire and off I went. It's amazing that after almost 30 years this bike rides and operates perfectly. I've had it for less than a day and I wouldn't dare think of geting rid of it. As a matter of fact, tomorrow I'm going to get more!

1965 Schwinn Varsity

(Click for full photo)

1965 Schwinn Varsity This is a 1965 Schwinn Varsity that I restored. It was my grandfathers and it was left in a shed for about 20+ years and it was really rusted when I got it. The tires & tubes were shot, fenders were rusty, rims were rusty, handlebars were rusty, and it was dirty. It was just about ready to get thrown out but I saved it. I worked all summer and fixed it up. This is what it looks like now with fenders off of an old huffy from the 50's. I had the original fenders all shined up but I liked these better. I have also recently added an old cable drive analog speedometer, new tires + tubes, and new cables. This bike never has let me down in anyway and it is a excellent bike. I treat it the way i would want to be treated if I was a bike.

1971 Schwinn Varsity

(Click for full photo)

1971 Schwinn Varsity It was literally "only driven on Sunday's by a little old lady" I refurbished mechanically and cosmetically. Although the cosmetic work is amateurish, my daughter is enjoying it's use now. The metal "Schwinn" label on the front tube is all that remains of the original paint or decals. There was even an original decal identifying the retail shop her son purchased it from. (my memory only recalls that it was in Arizona) Please comment on any advice to continue upkeep.
