Well, I'm picking the bike up today, later in the afternoon. My friend texted me late yesterday afternoon that his friend is fine with my first offer of $100, and even wants to throw in a girls Ross bike (to make room). I said thanks anway, but just the Schwinn and I'm a happy guy.
I just found these "as purchased" photos from many years back when I got the bike home.
It cleaned up beautifully, but it was no comparison to the original Schwinn's in quality. Cheaply made, sharp edges on the tank...but I only paid $100 for it and sold it a few weeks later for $350.
@JimR56 I actually only ride my road bikes, lol. I pretty much keep everything else as "eye candy". Pre and Post War, Raleigh, etc.
If I find something at a good price that I like, I'll buy it...detail it...and add it to the collection. After a while, I'll sell some and make room for more.
