    This one definitely falls under the category of;
    If they had only known, they would've taken better care of their bike.
    Usually, black holds up better than that.
    I'm sure, this one is destined for a little Fauxstoration.

    Of course, but that has nothing to do with what you are talking about or what this bicycle was named by the manufacturer.

    I'm not here to teach anyone anything. But I do think it is important to point out the hobby folklore that continues to persist despite proof to the contrary.

    Seriously? You are doubling down despite being shown Schwinn Catalog pages showing you are wrong? Amazing......

    Chevy cars are the most common cars because they made a lot of cars.

    I'd love to see a pic of this Cycleplane you describe. Eric posted the catalog pics of the Cycleplane.

    Don't be tempted down the rabbit hole of faulty logic. Even if such a unicorn bike does exist (def seen the cycleplane where motorbike is on decal), it changes nothing about the fact that the bicycle that is the original topic of this post is in fact a 1935 Model 35 , aka the Cycleplane. And Cycleplane was a name that was used by Schwinn to describe a model we all refer to as the "Motorbike" in their catalogs in 35, 36, 37, and 38. These are facts, plain and simple.

    I was saying that rare bikes like this are maybe undervalued... maybe 7500 should be a bargain for
    bikes this rare...

    ANYONE notice the ebay 35 Majestic has a 36 tank?

    no prong but long D cell holder...

    I recall a bit of variation on these 35-36 tanks has been pointed out here and there over the last year or two. The wire hole location and battery type doesn’t seem to always follow the rules, as if there are any.

    How much do you all think this bike will go for? Also, do you think there is any paint under that rust (will an oxylic bath bring the paint back out)? Isn't $7500 a bit steep for this bike, especially with the paint in the condition it currently is in?

    There's no telling...it's up pretty high right now based on the condition... as cool a 'survivor' as it is...
    it will never be a 'pretty bike' with the rusty plating and paint loss and wear.
    Still maybe a shame to restore that one..

    Cool bike. Recoup some money by selling that kickstand. After emailing the seller I can’t imagine them disassembling it and packing it up. I’m out. Saving my pennies for Memory Lane.

    $4000 was a good deal in my opinion. I wouldn't sell mine for that and just try building one. The tank is only the second hardest thing to find.
