Just picked up a couple of Schwinns today. I have always wanted one ( or two) but never found any in my price range. Today was my lucky day. I went to a swap meet here in Sacramento and I found a girls Hollywood bike. It isn't original as far as the seat and I believe the handle bars have been changed, but I fell in love with it because of the banana seat. It brought back memories of my first Schwinn when I was a kid. Anyway, I bought it and we walked it back to our truck ( we were selling too), then went out again. A little while later we found a boys bike with the same name as the girls bike. It caught my eye because there was another guy explaining to his friends that they made the bike so that one could ad a bar to make it a boys bike. Long story short, I did some wheeling and dealing and bought it too. Very Happy

Here are some pics of them.











Here's a shot of the top bar on the "boys" bike. You can see how it is attached to the bike. I have never seen one like this. Currently I am trying to find info online about it, but haven't had much luck.

LOL

Now I just need to get a roof rack for the bus!

Oh, hope this was the right place to post this. LOL I figured I bought them to haul on my VW's and I have a VW in the pics! LOL

Congratulations. Old bicycles is another big hobby for me. I own a '61 Schwinn Corvette and my wife owns a '57 Schwinn Spitfire. They're both all original and we ride them all of the time.
