That bike just talks! It's saying, "I was worked hard, and put away wet"! Look at the stretched chain falling off the bottom of the sprocket. I would like to know the actual mileage on that Truck? I bet the bike has been through 20 pairs of pedals. Notice the return spring on the center stand. It was just a screen door spring added by the Post Office to modify the normal Schwinn stand fender clip.
