This one is totally new to me. I've never heard of a "Miss Teen" model. Anybody else have one?
Cool, never heard of that one :?
Makes you wonder if there was/is a "Mr. Teen"!...Ha!...I'll bet its serial number puts it around a '60-'61...Schwinn was fool'in around with some pretty weird & comical names that fell flat on their face..."Skipper" comes to mind (I have one of those)...P 8)
never heard of it ether , but schwinn had bike for everybody . 8)
I think it was a model somewhere between the Debbie and the CO-ED, is it it a 24" or 26" model ? Good looking survivor !!!
No "Mr. Teen" that I can find, and that's probably a good thing. But, Miss Teen looks to be a one year only name they tried in 1966. Like the early '60 their marketing was still trying out some goofy names to see what would sell. Also in 66 there was a Buddy, and Candy (only funny to us, cause we have friends with those names) and Skipper was still alive.
All cleaned up! I am yet to be disappointed in the quality of Schwinn chrome
I had a 20" schwinn barbie at one point
Did you read the "Miss Teen" description on that catalog page Marty posted?...A 2-speed kick-back for $8 more...WOW!!! :shock: ...P 8)
Now all you need to do is hit the back side of the fender braces with some silver paint, and clean the Schwinn decal on the seat tube with a magic eraser! (If you're going the Rat Rod Texas Detailing route anyway)! :lol: -Adam
When I got my first 26" Schwinn with a yellow band kickback, a black Deluxe Typhoon, they were up to $10 extra. That was either '68 or '69. I don't think you could buy a loose kickback from the Schwinn dealer for $8 or $10 though. That price was if it came on a new bike. Gary
Thing came out nice. Have you tried wesleys bleach white tire cleaner on those grips? It's whitewall cleaner that I'm almost positive would clean those up nicely.
Happy new owner!
