    A local CL find today...originated in Topeka, Kansas.

    Another old Schwinn to detail out. Needs a shifter cable and a handle bar quick release handle.

    You'll make good coin on that one. I have sold two or three of them.
    Great score!

    The 450 one was back in January. I tried to get more, but that was the market.
    I know plenty of people ask for more, but ask and get are two different things.
    EDIT: I see two that sold in the 400s and a few minty ones in the 600s (but those had the highly sought after whitewalls).

    Cool little bike. I'm glad I was on vacations and never even saw it haha. Below one came out for $125 on CL (el Paso), didn't see it until it was sold too.
