    Would you be willing to sell your Schwinn track bike.

    There's some beautiful photos right there for that prospective calendar @corbettclassics.
    "Killer" doesn't come close!
    Can't believe I missed this earlier in the year.
    What rims are on there by the way?
    They are really, really cool.

    I sold this bike for $3,500 as you see it in the pictures.

    I can't remember re the wood rims but they were the "V" shape - I'll have to look through my old pics.
