Schwinn Super Sport S/P

Is this bike unusually awesome, collectable, or rare? Champion 2 steel, Cyclone derailleurs, Sugino AT cranks, and it says "Super Sport" on the headbadge.

I'd ride it. I believe it's fairly well regarded. Looking for the market value? I'd say maybe $400-$500 in great condition to the right person.

i'd say around $350 - maybe up to 400 w/ the right buyer and market. what hurts it in the touring market is the lack of cantilever brakes.

It be a great commuter, though. I wouldn't rank it any higher than other Japanese bikes with the same components. I think "right buyer" is the working phrase.

It has a cult following among the iBOB crowd, along with the Bridgestone RBs, Specialized Sequoia, and others. It fills a niche that isn't very common: lightish weight tubing with room for fatter tires and fenders. Not all UJB's offer that - in fact very few. This bike will be more responsive than a full touring rig, but will also probably be more whippy if fully loaded down.

It's very versatile without compromising performance (to the degree a loaded tourer does).

But yes, again, "right buyer" factors in.
