100$ for a set of grips for a middleweight is crazy expensive wouldn't you say???
aleady picked up the seat, pedals, rear reflector. Lol.[/QUOTE
the red paint would wear off the Schwinn lettering with regular use and then they just look like the plain white ones which are pretty common.. I’ve seen partially worn ones come up for sale for around $45 but not in red.. Only black..
I paid $150 for these from a fellow caber and havn’t Seen another pair even for sale in this condition.. Mine is 61.. A little different style.. They just made these grips for a couple years also..[/QUOTE]
Those were used in 1959. The 60 and later models came with the recessed teardrop grips even though they are illustrated in the 60-61 catalogs. One of the reasons why they are rare and hard to find.
