    Went to my first auction today in Scranton Pa
    and got some pretty good deals. What do you think, here they are. 2CD4B15C-D6AE-4183-BBD4-E290999105F8.jpeg 4240B878-8670-455F-85C7-78A511162C79.jpeg A5B7F93C-B031-415C-A7D4-6B0A39F277A9.jpeg

    I love the Wasp! I have one also, but it's a common color and not near as cool looking!

    Great scores! Love that Monark. I never see anything cool like that at the auctions I’ve been to.

    That is the 4th bike I seen in that color. The one I picked up that rusty has. The 24" girls bike bob sold. And another canti like yours but not a wasp. That is probably the coolest Schwinn color I've ever seen. Great find!

    Ok thanks for the info, but this bike has the wrong seat would it have a phantom type seat or one like the ones on panthers and hornets. Thanks

    Very nice finds!
    I had a Wasp, believe it was a '62 and it came with the seat pictured below which was the same as the cycle trucks of that era, and I believe it's also the same or similar to the late 50's phantoms.
    However, your wasp is older, and I believe it would have had a Mesinger like what came on the panthers and hornets of that time frame.

    I have a Wasp in that color. I put a black 9 hole rack and a black Rocket Ray on mine (the holes in the front fender were already there). The seat on mine is a Mesinger and looks to be original to the bike. Nice scores, I like the Monark too!

    I don't believe you will ever find that information. Bikes were not kept track of by model. V/r Shawn
