'55 Schwinn

I have a 1955 Schwinn Spitfire, original parts and big balloon tires. It is in good condition and no rust. What is it worth? Is it a collectors item? I'd like to sell it. Thank you.

Probably not worth a whole bunch. Most of the money bikes are pre WW2. Mens or boys bikes are worth more than womens or girls bikes as most collectors are male. Post war Schwinn's that can command some money are the Phantoms and B-6's, Not Spitfires. Post some pics if you can. Some parts like the Wheels and tanks are usefull to collectors restoring bikes.

Hi...the bike is green, has a horn on the handle bars and a basket. It has old fashioned big tires. Its a 27 inch bike in good condition. I took good care of it. Anything else you'd like to know?

If there is a serial number on the rear dropout--the frame part near where the rear wheel bolts to the frame-- can you post it?
