If he gets $2500, then yes they are. I have been offered over $1000 for my '69 more than once, but there's too few details to know if this one is worth 2500, IMO. I can say that original schwinn accessories jack the price up on these quite a bit, such as the turn signals. But there's other details that collectors of these things look for that affect the resale price that aren't mentioned. Are the tires repops or original? If they are NOS Schwinn tires, do they have a '71 date code? (they should match the year of manufacture) Is the seat an NOS seat, a repop, or a recover? As for why it was repainted, I'm sure the author meant the bike has not been ridden since it was restored.

Sting Rays are going up that much, but the bike pictured isn't a Sting Ray, it's a Fastback. From what I've seen, Fastbacks are only going for $400 if they're restored or they have the rams horn handlebars. This guy is about $200 too high. If he gets his asking price, good for him

This bike cost $1500.00 in 1985. Still looks and rides that good today.It has SUNTOUR SURPRME componets,MAVIC rims. THE best of the best, & BIANCHI seat. Even the BIANCHI color "SELSE GREEN".You wont find a better bike for this price.This bike was built for SPEED. NOTICE THE 'LOW' handbars. call JOE 440 521 2970.

Haha, I'll be polite, but the guy selling it is strange. He's either a flipper or gets stolen bikes or something. I once called him to setup a time to look at a single speed he was selling, and told him I had sent an email asking a few details about the bike. Told him I would call him later, then, he wouldn't answer my calls. Unlisted and relisted the same bike for 3x the money, responded to my email "not interested". Seems like he didn't like me asking specific details about the gearing. Maybe he was thinking I was a cop or something.

Yeah, I don't get the seat angle either. But is is, however, a "blacl letaher racing style saddle". I've always thought the letaher was far superior to leather anyway.

Made in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
All original, good condition.
$1000 OBO
Call 24 hours: 831-331-8844

* Location: Tucson
* it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests



First follow up:

I've got to post this to my bike forum board, we all restore and work on old bikes and classics. Even some of the rarest Schwinns and other antiques dont warrant that kind of change, especially if not completely original pristine condition or fully restored. HYSTERICAL, YOU NEED TO LAY OFF THE CRACK PIPE AND START RIDING THE BIKE TO CLEAR OUT YOUR LUNGS AND HEAD. LMMFAO THE GUYS ON THE SITE ARE GONNA LOVE THIS ONE THANKS FOR THE LAUGH.

* Location: Tweakerville
* it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests


Second follow up:


"Made in Milwaukee, Wisconsin."
**harley-davidsons were made in milwaukee. indian motorcycles were made in springfield, mass. your bicycle was made in england, not USA. look at it.

"All original,"
**did your bicycle originally come with mismatching grips and missing the chainguard?

"good condition.
$1000 OBO"
**i think you have put one too many zeros in your price, pal.

"Call 24 hours: 831-331-8844"
**dude--you are a complete ******-nozzle. i hope people call you at all hours just to tell you how lame you and your ad are.
