1961 Schwinn Speedster Red

Here is a vintage Schwinn Speedster, a nice middleweight bike with a steel cantilever frame.

A super comfortable old cruiser bike.  This one has the 2-speed kickback rear hub and steel wheels. Original saddle would have been red/white and the original fenders painted red/white.  Here is the catalog image for 1961:

This bike still rides nice, which says a lot about the quality of build.  Price was $59.95 back in 1961.
