    here's a real nice 60 varsity on ebay right now.seller has it listed as a 62 10 speed,but i ran the serial listed and it's a 60 model.pretty sure the 10 speeds came out later.it's hard for me to see,but maybe the decal says 10 speed? you might be able to contact the seller for better info.i'm a little confused with the listing.maybe the wrong serial number is listed?

    It looks like it has the 1960-61 8 speed derailleur and the early Varsity's only came in black in 60-61. Front derailleur is also 60-61.

    I have 2 8 speeds. The one on ebay was a 1960 10 speed. The 8 speeds were only made until June. The fork stripe design on that bike was only used in 1960. The Varsity 8 speeds are very rare. Let me know if I can help you in any way.
