Schwinn " his & her's " came over.

I recently saw these 2 almost matching Schwinn's for sale & decided to see if they wanted to come home with me. They are both 5 spd Suburbans & will need minor work, light rust removal, & servicing. I guess the previous owner thought it was cool to flip the handlebars upside down ??? I have a couple of Pleisher rear racks that I may put on them, when finished , then sell them. Both are coppertone, but pix aren't very good.

I love 5 speed suburbans. Those are not coppertone.Sometimes it is hard to tell from a picture but they look like chestnut.

Nice bikes...they look like they're fresh from the latest Aetna commercial. Florida should be prime market for his/her bikes, no?

Love the Beagle by the way, had them growing up....been thinking about getting a pair of them....don't know if i want the responsibility though?

This area is a hot market for bikes, mostly due to the University of Fl. , but many seniors buy bikes as well. Once I finish with them, they will bring a good price. I need to look up their serial numbers for date of manufacture, first.

That beagle.

I had one growing up and while studying abroad in England, she came down with hip displasia. They put her down while I was away so for years after I'd return to my parents house and wonder where the dog was. Best dogs.

One of my favorite memories growing up was riding my Trek multi-track as fast as I could to keep her at bay, she'd cling to the back wheel and howl amazingly.

I think someone used a shrink-ray on the saddle of the men's bike.
