How is this bike getting so many bids at this starting price?
I dont do anything past 1960 so maybe its just not my thing but it looks like a super late model bike.

I just noticed the starting price was 199 but 13 bids on a bike I probably wouldnt look at twice just startled me I guess. I sound like a vintage snob but Im really just curious.

Take a close look it is a very clean cruiser ,quite nice paint. A real Chicago Schwinn is always in demand especially one set up with front and rear break capabilities. That being said it will sell for more then it is worth. Some people do not realize there are other venues to buy vintage bikes. I want one of those but I will wait and it will come to me.

I guess Im kinda spoiled then and have just become jaded to the "market". ....or maybe I dont have many friends who are newbies to the scene. I saw the 80's ACS hubs but I have a set of those I nearly had to give away so that couldnt be it.

I could just think of alot nicer (older) bikes to buy for nearly 400 bucks! haha .....for $100 more, there is a really beautiful survivor tank-model Hornet for sale local to me.

I think my observations make me sound like a bike snob.

No snobbery, you call it like you see it. Different places have better selection. I wish they went unsold around here. Feebay is Always going to be overpriced, you get people bidding on objects they have never seen in person and fear they never will. Panic buying kinda, I do it with doughnuts and ice cream all the time haha
