Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The Schwinn Varsity is and was to bikes as the Ford Pinto was to cars. It's a joke. A bad joke, not a 'classic'.

Is that why they call it the 'mistake by the lake"?

We get tons of people over here regularly trying to sell off Varsities for more than that, sometimes in the triple digits. "Vintage" my butt!
