One of a kind, best schwinn ive ever had since my apple krate, put some elbow grease on it, but everything is original from the brake line housing to the handle bar tape (from hunt-wilde company, the original company that made the handle bar tape at the time for the rams horn).

Definitely A Showroom Quality bike

Sorry, but I must inform you that this bike is not "all original" and it has been repainted. Not familiar with all the parts on these but I can say reflector pedals didn't come on a 67 Schwinn. The bike has been redone, not all original and I won't comment on your asking price.

Appreciate the feedback, how is it that you can tell the repaint??? There's no hint of different shades of black anywhere?? Im curious, not saying you're wrong or disagreeing with you, i just dont see any inconsistencies, thanks for the response.

The photo of the drop out tells the most. A painted over chip, too much paint in the serial number. That is always the trick to get the paint thin so i does not blurr out the numbers. Still a very nice bike.

Didn't wanna post it, but since you mentioned it...yeah, looks repainted or at the very least touched up to me.

Agreed. The painted over chip suggests touchup But the decal whiteness says repaint. Not sure where the pedals are from. Correct me if i'm wrong but shouldn't it have a tuft silver glitter seat?
I used a mylar ribbed on mine to add a little bling. Still a very nice bike. I have seen ones like it go on ebay for 750/1000. I have too much into mine. Chrome ain't cheap and i stated out in a deep hole.

Agree that this bike has been repainted. No red primer coat showing at chipped paint.

Still, a very nice fastback!

One of the biggest give-aways are the decals.

The round quality decal on the seat post tube is incorrect. Both Schwinn names (horizontal and vertical) were the same font (size).
The "stars" at each end of the Schwinn name are half the size of a real one.
Shifter decals are repro.

Derailleur wheels are slotted which started around 1971 and newer. Yours should be smooth.

Although yours is a 67, a 66 fastback I recently sold shows the big stars on the Schwinn decal, plus the factory quality decal font and smooth derailleur wheels.

You still have a Super Nice Fastback!!

60sstuff nailed it. He is correct on all of the points. Saw it on the bay, looks like a nice repaint but with some wrong parts.
