Endeavor to persevere and things will work out.
So what was the last year Schwinn put skip tooth chains on bikes... my 52 Hornet is skip tooth, and just noticed the 57 I have for my wife is a skip tooth chain as well.
This site is great. I am a Schwinn guy. I have been restoring them for 2 years now and was strictly getting robbed by Ebay. Now, I am meeting people who have the same interests and are willing to barter or sell at reasonable prices. I have been on the CABE faithfully for 2 months now. THIS IS THE BEST SITE FOR OLD BIKES PERIOD!!
STEVE A.K.A SCHWEIRDO
i've been here on the site since about the end of 2002 and I will say it is an awesome forum, so much knowledge here on schwinns and other bikes. Im always still learning about all other bikes and my interest in different styles I can def say have been attributed to seeing all the different stuff that has come through. And the friendships i have made will be life long and thats invaluable so thanks to all those that have contributed to thecabe and to dave and scott for making it available to us.
Just dropped in to see what condition your Schwinn is in
Newby here saying hello from Oklahoma. I don't ride much anymore because of health issues but I still enjoy working on and restoring my old Schwinn's. This '78 Paramount is my favorite of my 3 Schwinn bikes. I'm still trying to round up some original parts. The Blue bike in the background is my one owner '76 Super Le Tour 1.2.
1995 Cruiser SS, not restoring, mking it look old.
Higgins fenders, Plastic Zephyr, paperboys, Vinyl/Schwinn decals TNT Signs Ontario, OR and I did the striping and modifications to the Hawthorne tank (in progress). Found green glitter grips and got a big grin out of that. Still working on the lights so the Zephyr shell is empty.

My First Schwinn
This was my first Schwinn, My father bought it for me new in 1963 when I was 12, The bike has always been my pride and joy and is all original, the only thing replaced are the tires, worn the first set out. always had a love of Schwinns, since 1990 I got the bug and started collecting Schwinns esp. the middle weights and balloon tire ones, also fell in love with the Paramounts, thanks for looking.
Hello Fellow Schwinners...
I hail from the Great Lakes region and am a serious Schwinnaholic. I think my afflictions began when my parents started me on low-level dosages of Schwinn bicycles. I was administers a late '50s/early 60s Panther followed later by a '67 or '68 Coppertone/fendered Stingray 2-speed kickback...this was then followed by a later 60s/early 70 24" middleweight.
I have moved on from that time, but recently come to the conclusion that the Schwinns never left my blood.
Approximately 5-6 years ago, for no reason whatsoever, I bought a well-used Stingray off eBay for cheap money. It sat in my basement undisturbed for years. Over that time, old Schwinns started to appear out of nowhere....
I best heard it said by another forum member, which describes my same affliction, as well, as, " I was innocently standing there, minding my own business, when I accidentally bought another bike!"
What started out as one unexplained purchased, has unfolded into this small collection:
1995 'Lil Tiger w/ training wheels (son's first two-wheel bike)
1974 Stingray single speed coaster ( currently in restoration)
1970 Stingray Fastback single-speed coaster (next in line for restoration)
19-- Stingray reproduction in Coppertone (still in box)
19-- Stingray reproduction in Blue (still in box)
1969 Schwinn Twinn 2-speed in Campus Green very clean original in service
197- Schwinn Town & Country in Blue in poorer shape quietly waiting for my help
1962 Schwinn American (standard) 2-speed in Radiant Green very clean/original in service
2000 Schwinn Sierra GS 21-speed currently in service on my son's college campus
19-- Schwinn 24" 10 speed Chinese K-Mart special mountain bike parked in the basement.
I don't know what drives this obsession...maybe I don't want to know....
Nevertheless, I have to stop buying and start working....
Just stop driving, it'll work.
That's a real beaut and thanks for the good work keeping it up!
New to SchwinnCity
I am purchasing two Pre 65' Schwinn Hollywoods for $125. I plan on restoring them and using them in my wedding next year. I am so excited to pick them up on the 4th!
looking for value
Schwinn BF Goodrich (believed to be 1953), "good" condition - blue and white, (in parts. missing, cranks, front sprocket, pedals, seat). All other parts available.
Any idea on value as is (frame, rims and tires, fenders)? worth restoring?
