    Found this cheap on Craigslist. Was going to flip it, but once my wife saw it, that was all that she wrote.

    I did a double take when this kid pulled it out of the garage. It looked too good to be true. The original tires are in near perfect shape.

    Very nice bike...you rarely see them this clean. On the subject of Schwinn Breezes,I bought a 1970 Breeze,this week,mostly because it was real cheap but also because its black. I don't recall ever seeing a black woman's Schwinn before. You can tell its not a re-paint,
    is it (and I HATE using this term) rare?...or at least unusual?...or have I been leading too much of a sheltered life? Any thoughts?
    Didn't mean to hijack your thread...sorry...Pappy 8)

    Just wondering, what would you price this bike?
     
  11. Given the great condition I would ask $150 and let them beat me down to $100.

    I owned a black Breeze once. It was a coaster model. I regreased everything and it was still the hardest bike to pedal I've ever seen. Sold it to the lady that carried our mail. Figured she had the legs for it. :p I also saw a black girls Corvette once, an original from the 50's. Gary
