Hateful &#!^e heap made by bellicose nerf herders. The chrome is ready to fall to the ground when exposed to sunlight and oxygen. Loosely resembles a beloved bicycle from the past. "Revenge buy" this for someone you despise. Guaranteed to hasten the demise of western civilization.
You are absolutely right!! I found a 2004 coppertone heap in the box for only $500.00. I offered them 250.00 and they thought i was joking. Then they found out i was dead serious, then they really got pissed! I am so glad i passed on this lump of &#!^!! I m building a 66 sting ray with mostly original parts and will have less than $300.00 in it and have a much nicer bike that's worth twice what your asking for yours. Good luck!!
I was hanging out on the Schwinn forum back when these were first released. Guys were SO stoked and they were camping out in front of walmart to get these on the first day before they were all gone. Guys were buying 4-5 of these at a time for an ,"investment". I wonder how long it took for buyers remorse to set in on that one?
That springer is cheap on eBay aftermarket. The only problems as exhibited by my own example on Rosa is that the cap nuts and bolts are brass or something and darken fast like the Statue Of Liberty and I had to apply Permatex to the crown bolt or whatever so that the nut wouldn't keep trying to fall off. Ain't gonna come off until I make it.
And dogs hate the sound it makes, even if you can't hear it. And it's 'chrome' but more like stainless chrome.
