70's Swing Bike - $600
Selling my 1970s Swing Bike. This was a bicycle that was made for just a few years and marketed by the Osmond's on their show. I've owned it for about 20 years and have had a blast riding it in various events. Perfect for having fun in your neighborhood or riding in Cyclovia! This bike is in excellent working condition and able to be ridden and enjoyed as is.

The photo shows the bike with an aftermarket spring that allows for more swing when riding, I do have the original spring set and it is included with the sale of the bike.
A race bike in any era is a highly personal choice that at its "best" balances the requirements of fit, weight, handling, durability and cost tempered by the willingness to toss it and oneself down the pavement at considerable speed. ~Bandera
