    An approximately 30 year old Schwinn Caliente in un-restored mint condition is not rare? Where do you live? I want to move there!And you bought this bike for 21.00 Un-Freaken-Believeable!

    WOW! Almost the same as one I refurbished, sold & featured on OTSG on March 30, 2009. I loved the foam handlebar grips. I believe mine was a smaller frame though. :)

      Wow, it does look just like mine. My frame seems larger. I was looking for a large frame when I bought it. Don’t plan on selling it.

    That’s a great looking bike! What a steal for $21!!! Bar tape: White, black, or red!

    You got real lucky. That does not happen too often. I have paid $20 plus for only vintage handlebars on E bay. Nice bike, I had a yellow Varsity stolen a 1976 it was super heavy. Your bike is worth ten times what you paid. Congrats.

    And I didn`t even mention it has my favorite accessory,
    the “Schwinn Approved GIANT” sticker. It just doesn`t get much better than that, in the world of 1980`s Schwinns.
