    I can see….that is a classic!
    I had the same bike, same year…but different color–blue.
    Gotta love the old bar wrap that was one step above electrical tape.
    By the looks of that gem I would bank on it being 100% original.

    Man that is a Lime beauty, looks like a time capsule find and the speedo is way retro cool. Nice pick up Jose- I gotta start going to thrift stores on my lunch break!

    That there is probably my favorite type of Schwinn. I love the color and matching bar wrap. Cool!

    If my four eyes don’t deceive me, you still have that clear plastic chainstay protector on that ol’ Schwinn, nice.
    Yes–110% original.
    I sold my old Varsity, well I traded it…..and now that I think about it–other guy made out like a bandit.
    Oh well, so many bikes…will find another someday.(tee-hee, but I did keep old clear plastic chainstay protector…it now resides on an old Panasonic)
