    Hello. Last Saturday the bike in the pics below was posted in a vintage bicycles and parts forums on Facebook and got sold the same day. It’s a black and white 1950 Schwinn straightbar with fenders and is in worn but decent condition. It was located in New Ulm, Mn and I think the buyer was local. I’m trying to get a hold of the person who bought it. I’d like to talk to him about it. I contacted the seller, but he wasn’t really helpful in putting me in touch with him. If anyone on here knows him or knows who he is, would you please have him contact me? He can call or text me at (520) 333-8177.
    Thank you for any help you can offer, Danny

    Awesome, thank you. The only thing the seller did say was that a local person bought it through craigslist. Otherwise he didn’t really seem to want to help. I’d really love to talk to the new owner and see I he might be willing to sell it. It’s exaxtly what I am looking for. I’d really appreciate any help you can offer. Thank you for responding, Danny
