1936 Vintage Pre-War Schwinn Cycleplane Bicycle

Now this is a really neat and very old bike, a 1936 Schwinn Cycleplane Cruiser. 

1936 Schwinn Cycleplane Bicycle

It originally would have had a tank and a headlight on the front fender.  This one is a bit rough, but still interesting to see how different the bars and frame are from newer bikes.  26” wheels with a coaster brake and 18” frame with a 21.5” top tube.  Super neat bike, how about that kickstand?  A great piece of bicycle history.  Different from modern bikes, but still very similar.  Restored it would still be a very nice ride, I am sure.

  1. I love that kickstand. My first bike, a “way too big” 28″ Gary had one just like it. That one also had a framed piece of plywood for a back carrier. Happy New Year Jim. Allan
