Wow, very nice bike! I appreciate that you've provided one of the most thorough descriptions I've read on here. It would be nice if every bike sale provided a detailed report like yours, there would be fewer surprises when the bike arrived. Good luck with the sale.

Thank you! I very much appreciate that.
Im not AS familiar with Schwinn as a few others, but I do have a first and foremost appreciation for its History, Completion and Overall 80yr old condition which with whats here, despite the little quirks,. Is incredible to have survived unchanged this far.

How long have you owned the bike? Is it from the area? Kimberly Kaukauna area? What story did the original owner have to tell? I live about 45 min south of Green Bay. That is why I ask.
Thank You
Frank

Ive had it for some odd months. The original Owner is a 98 yr old WW2 vet who bought the bike in Highschool. It was bought and used solely in the areas surrounding the Green Bay to Milwaukee Area. Not too deep of a story. He just bought the bike because he wanted one,. saved his pennies from his first job to get er and when he did, it remained a piece of his life through and through until unable to comfortably ride further.

Thanks fo the story. I also have a 36 Autocycle
Maybe we can talk about it here before too long and compare aspects about them. Id be happy to go through the details.
I enjoy talking Shop with someone as equally as passionate about the make and model, let alone the hobby itself.
