    Fantastic! My first thought was, It must be re-painted
    (wrong again) What a wonderful find. I`m wondering if the plastic pie-plate is correct for 1962. The Bicycle Gods have smiled down upon you. Congrats!

    Incredible ! This bike gave me chills for a minute or two. Even the Perfect plastic Pie Plate is awesome. It has character and more. I love bikes but have developed a liking to Variety and have sinned by converting two 80’s 10 speeds. But, neither compared to this Schwinn with its headlite and chrome fenders. This beauty must survive. Both of my conversions had split or one split and chipped plastic pie plates. This Blue Boy looks unscathed and lends a nostalgic bit of character for my viewing pleasure. Nice Work and Thanks. Cool Saddle also.

    What a ride! I really like the San Marco “racing”
    matress and the graphics. Truly an untouched beaut!

    Thanks! Sorry about the Huret pie plate! It was like that when I found it! It also has Atom hubs (France) and Weinmann brakes. #H255098

    So…. does your “Top 3″ include another Varsity done up touring style? You know, one with chrome in all the right places??

    By the way, wait ’til you see my newest Scwhinn acquisition. I think you’ll like it….

    Hey are you still selling this beauty? If so let me know because I need a bike and this is exactly what I’m looking for.

    how well does the generator work?

  • Humberchristopher28

    The bicycle was not made in France. The bike was made in Chicago, U.S.A. Some of the parts such as the Huret Alvit derailer and shifters, the rear hubs, the rear Atom derailer cluster are French. The bike frame was made in Chicago. The seat was made in Italy but there were a variety of seats available from Chicago, France, England and Italy.The stainless steel fenders, handlebar stems and bars too are from Chicago. The brakes are Swiss Weinmann, the rims are Chicago Schwinn made. The front chainring is French the steel arms themselves are Chicago Schwinn forged. Love the decals, yes the plastic derailer cluster guard is wrong. The generator light set is British Miller.
