The more I mess with vintage bikes the more convinced I am that they are of a better overall quality than a lot of the later stuff. I have a late 60's Hollywood? that the chrome cleaned up on very well after 30+ years in storage. I have a later model Giant made Collegiate that had very poor quality chrome and paint on it. Just for comparison I have a near same year model Huffy Baypoint that is of an apparent better quality. You can't go wrong with any Schwinn that was Chicago built IMHO
