Look Ma, No Hands!
This is a really nice Schwinn survivor, Made in Chicago on Jan. 18th of 1957.....Serial No. B 53848
This was found hanging in Grandpa's basement recently, He and the kids rode it for years and then it sat untouched for many more years.
It looks to be pretty much original ...I'm not an expert, so if someone see's something NOT original, please let us know .
The rear tire is a Schwinn Tractor and the front tire is a Schwinn Westwind (cracking in the tread) they hold air and are rideable .
The wheels have the usual dents and some pitting...I used 0000 steel wool on all of the chrome parts and they cleaned up quite well.
I tried to take pics of the pitting that wouldn't clean up on the front wheel. They look really good for being 64 yrs old !
The inside of the horn tanks look almost new ! The inside of the light housing has a little rust ....Both the horn and the light work !
I took it for a little ride and it rides and stops Great !
It's ready to enjoy and ride as is with the great
patina or restore it to it's original beauty !

Selling Locally ....pickup only ....no Shipping, Sorry

Riding a '38 Autocycle Deluxe
Later Phantom/cycle truck plastic/rubber ( Messinger ? ) seat is a great upgrade, that's what I run on my Hornet Deluxe!, much better than those funky og middleweight seat', great looking bike and doesn't look like the red faded to orange as much as mine.

That seat is the Schwinn Approved 7000 and it was an option on many of the models over the years including 1957. Also seen in Black.
Ahh....Thank you for the info ...So this could very well be the ORIGINAL seat that came with this bike .

I'm not sure when that seat was available in the tan but there are actually two part numbers for that piece, one for B models and one for D models. Colors were not specified.
