Little vintage Schwinn...

This is such a classic little bike for a kid, so much better than any of the department store variety today. Original sparkle grips, saddle, pedals, fenders, wheels. Hot orange color. Typhoon model, perhaps, I was a Huffy kid, and don't really know my Schwinn's well. Spotted at the Velo, for a mid-week classic pick.

Whatever kid ends up with this will be riding in style. By the way, it does come with the front fender as well, it just was not attached yet when I snapped these photos, and it is small; I don't think those wheels are even 18" dia., maybe 16"?

  1. Looks just like my first bike, passed down from my older brothers. Except mine was purple, and had tassels coming out of the hand grips — and usually a card in the spokes to make motor noises.
