    My family has had this Schwinn Streamline Aerocycle in the family since the 70's. We have just started to research what it is. Not sure what our plans are for it, but figured everyone here would like to see it. Enjoy!

    That's a valuable bike you have there. Amazing bicycle! Get it riding and enjoy it. You should find some great info on The Cabe to help with your research.

    Do you have any experience with vintage beach cruisers?

    What's the story behind it? Who bought it and why, what did they use it for? The best part of these old bikes is often the family story connected to it.
    Thanks

    We are not sure of the entire history. I know my grandpa used it and rode it and we think he may have gotten it from an auction.

    @cyclingday is super nice and informative. You should send him a message. He is one of the most trusted and respected guys on this website (there are many). I bet you he could give you some insight into your incredible bike.

    a bit more unique then the standard aerocycle since it has a decal on the front fender saying what would be the badge name. I have seen LaSalle but never Excelsior killer bike glad to see it survived. If It was me I would not restore it or touch it up.
