    Re: 2010 Schwinn.

    The Corvette definitely has some 'instant classic' lines to it.
    Not to offend the Schwinn 'purist' but it reminds me of some of old Elgin designs with it's minimal framing (lack of canti bars) and some Monark traits decorative head tube covers (the built in cup holder). I wasn't too keen on the 'cup holder in the frame' thing at first, but seeing it in black...hmmmmm...I'm liking it more.

    I couldn't tell from the photo, are the forks round or blade profile? If someone was to throw a set of truss rods, an old long spring saddle and some 'aged' whitewalls, it could be 50 years old.

    Bottom line, I'll take one.
    Cheers!

    Here are two 2008 Schwinns that I have. I have added/changed several things on each. The Cruiser 3: chain guard (original was gold), head light, Phantom carrier/tail light, saddle bag, grips, Phantom tank, handlebars, gold wall tires (came with white walls), dice valve caps.
    SS Sport: King Sting rear carrier, head light, handlebars, grips, seat bag, etc

    Here's my cruiser.
    Picked it up on CL last summer. I haven't regreased or even cleaned it up yet.
    And it still rides great. It has to be the most comfortable bicycle I own.
    Sorry for the night pics.

    I had never seen that one as I don't look out for the road bikes, but what a pretty machine!

    Cheers, I love it too. I am really into my cruisers but I was researching road bikes as I am going to start cycling to work and came across this bike totally by accident. I was initially sad to find out they dont sell this model in UK/Europe but luckily the UK distributor had it as a demo model, so they sold it to me (in my exact size). Its supposed to be an eco bike, so made from flax, resin, bamboo, carbon fiber, recycled rubber etc.

    Mainly its about the look for me and the rarity and I have always liked Schwinn bikes, plus the frame lights up when the bike starts moving, the front hub has a generator that powers LED lights inside the frame.

    There is not a shop in my area (that i know of, portland OR) selling the signiture models so I wasn't too sure how they looked. Here are some real good close ups I found. Click through to my pic host and then click again on them for some really HUGE photos. :!: :!:
