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

Webshots is bailing out, if you find any of my posts with corrupt picture files and want to see them corrected please let me know. :(
