    Assuming this is a Schwinn, is this a girl's bike turned into a boy's bike or maybe a model I've not seen before?

    It seems to have an extra bar the girls don't have ;)

    I was going to look at this, but was too much money. My guess is dad was cheap and got a used girls bike and made a boys bike.
