    Can someone i.d. this please. Also, are racks and bars original to this? The racks don't seem to match

    Thanks!

    The frame has the look similar to the "varsity camelback". The racks don't match because
    they appear to be add-on from different companies. Can you determine the name on the rear
    brake. Shimano,or New Departure for example?

    Are you able to ask the seller questions?
    Have you done a project bike before?

    Unless this is dirt cheap and you plan on doing a custom/rat I'd pass on this one. V/r Shawn

    @2jakes yes, the project is not an issue. This looked different to me for some reason but I don't know them well enough to tell if it was original or a good model.

    Thanks @Freqman1 the ask price is not good at this point but I assume negotiable or I would walk. Just wanted to see if it anything different than others.

    It's easy for me to say pass on this bike because I prefer heavyweight bikes with tanks
    from the 50s on back to the '20s.

    And you're right in passing it up if the price doesn't come down.

    I don't see any value here.lightweight with added stem,seat,and sissy bar.unless you're really into mish mash bikes.

    I believe that fork is the tubular style used on mid-50's Travelers, and not original to the frame, which is '60's or later. Price as a parts bike.

    Thank You, that was part of my interest as it did not seem to fit other similar styled bikes although I am no Schwinn expert. Was not sure if this was an off the wall, rare type model or pieced together. I have decided to just pass at this time.
