Simply stunning! This Violet gem of a Schwinn has nearly flawless paint and decals to match – it was new 55 years ago. The owner brought it into the shop last summer and we gave it a Level II Rehab – basically a frame up cleaning, degreasing, de-rusting, polishing and reassembly. The decision was made to upgrade the purple and white S saddle from the low end one that came with it to a 9 spring mattress version. Whitewalls were the excellent tires of choice and look great against the gleaming chrome and vibrant violet paint.
