I picked this up this weekend. I bought it for one reason only but thought there might be other pieces of the bike that might be worth keeping. I don't know a lot about these years of "Schwinns" so I thought I'd put it out there for a game of keep or scrap. Everyone list what if anything you would keep on this bike. The remains may end up at the local salvage yard or re-purposed.

I would definitely save the tires.

A Rat Rodder or somebody who does Lowrider bikes, just might want the carcass. Throw it up RRB or eBay and let the ball roll...

Maybe keep the sprocket and crank, rims if straight, but those bars look gouged up pretty bad.

Thanks everyone for the feedback. The tires are why I bought the bike. The crank, sprocket, and the bars are the other parts I would consider keeping. Anyone know what the year might be? It's chinese so I'm guessing late 1990's.

I'd swap the tires and the chainring out and give the bike to charity or sell it to someone who just needs a bike to ride. Those bikes are no beauties but they can ride very well and are useful for some things. Try riding it, you might be surprised.

I have one, Its a CRUISER ALLOY SS. They’re a sweet rider and has the classical Schwinn style. Frame,handlebars,stem,seat post and rims are all aluminum! You can’t beat that for a comfortable ride and light weight.

Thanks everyone for the great feedback. It's nice to get others' perspective on things. As neglected as this bike is, it rides really nice. You got me thinking...due to the fact I've got way too many projects on my hands and I bought this on the cheap, I may slap on some newer tires, do a quick run through and donate it to the local homeless shelter. They always have a need for good bikes.
