1963 Schwinn Corvette

I have a chance to buy this Schwinn Corvette for $125. I saw it today and it looks like it has everything on it and all original. Its only missing the head badge and the back fender reflector. Would it be a good buy?

I think it would be well worth that price.

Bikes: No-name LH drive track. Also ride an Exxon Graftek, a Masi, a Trek R200 or a RR Boneshaker for fun!

Now that you have it, do a search on the term "oxalic acid bath" and get the rust off those rims.
