I'm guessing it is the "Schamano" drivetrain.

Not only is "Schamano" funny, "hybred" just tickled my funny-bone.

This ad pops up periodically (for months & months now). I wish someone would buy it and make it go away. I think that it is unlikely for the seller to drop the price. BTW, I have a used one for free if you pay postage.

That's one ugly blanket.

Maybe there's some extra value because this is NOS, but I doubt the NIB part is all that helpful:

I have a Rare males 27" 1973 Schwinn Sport Tour. Its all orginal with Brooks seat and generator light on the front tire. It has the orginal Sport Le Tour tires. They do hold air. I have the orginal lock and cable but no key.I also have the orginal air pump that was sold with this bike new. Theres never been any parts replaced on the bike. I have seen this same bike sale in ebay for $950 restored and without the brooks seat or the air pump or generator light or orginal lock and cable. Its also has all the reflectors in good condition. It has the orginal leather straps on the pedals. This was a California bike. It has some suface rust on the spokes.$1200obo Thanks
Major, major, value in them original tires, rotten pedal straps, rusting spokes, keyless lock, reflectors, and Californianess of the bike.

What, pray tell, is Californianess? Have I just been insulted?

The seller seemed to think that "California bike" is a selling point.

Same with cars. CA doesn't use (or need to use) salt on their roads in winter. Of course... the seller may have over-looked airborne salt from ocean winds.

BTW: Nice bike!

Guy here paid big bucks for a one owner, "never seen snow", "never left California", 1970 440 Cuda from photos only. He never gave any thought that it may have been on the coast most of that time. When the transport company delivered it he thought it was going to collapse before they got it off the truck. He was able to salvage the drivetrain, interior and the firewall and cowl with the VIN tag, all the outer sheet metal and floor were full of tiny little rust holes. He eventually found a rust free shell in New Mexico and after $$$$$ and a couple years had a very nice 1970 440 Cuda.
