1984/85 SCHWINN World Tourist Deluxe-NEVER USED! - $225 (Stuart, FL)
Date: 2010-04-24, 10:37AM EDT
Reply to: sale-vjqv4-1707780066@craigslist.org

This bike has NEVER BEEN RIDDEN!

Purchased for my wife for Christmas 1984 or 1985. It has been hanging in our garage in NY for YEARS and in FLA for 8 years. NEVER BEEN IN BAD WEATHER.

Bike has some surface rust, looks like it will clean up beautifully.

PURCHASE PRICE OF THIS BIKE WAS $450.00 in the mid 80's!

I can't remember how many speeds it has, and I PROBABLY still have the original paperwork that goes with it. I'd have to look if you are
interested in that kind of stuff.

The bike I THINK was a 20? SPEED? Has two speed controllers, one on each side of the handle bars.

Contact me if you would like some better pictures.

Make me an offer, time to move this to someone who can use it.



Positron. 20 speed. Knows exactly how much it cost him 20 years ago, doesn't know where the paperwork is.



-Kurt

Not to worry, he's likely also lost as to where his hair, Camaro, hot girlfriend and half of his life went (he knew he had them somewhere)...darn. Always save the box or something.

Rear grapples keep her from falling off backward, even if swoon from efforts labor to pedal-drive both spouse ahead.

Worse than that, it's Taiwan-made, when Taiwan-made bikes weren't all that good. This is nowhere nearly as good as the English-made bikes.

Coincidentally, $65 is the seller's copay for the tetanus shot...

Bianchigirll, why didn't the Bertonis sell, were they all the same pink/red color? There was a similar one on our local CL for $250 and I thought it might fit my wife, but it looked a bit neglected so I passed...
