Found this on local Craigslist. Is there any money to be made on it? Worth more as is or parted out?
"Schwinn Sprint 1975 Rare Short Coupled Frame - $25
Rare Short Coupled Frame with unique curve in the seat mast ?-74-75 only
24" frame"

They were made from '74 through '77 and were basically identical to the Continental except for the frame. That one is missing the original pedals and saddle but otherwise looks original. They sell for $150 in that condition in a good market.

Thanks for the reply. Apparently it did have some value cause it got sold before the end of the afternoon. I'll be sure to jump on the next one like it.

They're pretty heavy (electro-forged frame and a catalog weight of 36-37 pounds, depending on frame size).

The short-coupled frame Paramount would be much more desirable (and much more expensive). The frame design was developed for hill climbing.
