1988 schwinn traveler

Sold – 63.5cm 1988 Schwinn Traveler Road Bike

This bike is a size 63.5cm and from 1988. Schwinn sold these bikes sized in inches, so if you are wondering about that extra .5cm, it’s because this bike measures out to be a 25″ frame. It is currently set-up a bit non-traditional, with a modern front wheel and a red-striped tire. We think it looks great as is, and it turned a lot of heads when we rode it. But if you aren’t into the non-traditional look, we can swap a matching set of aluminum wheels and matching tires on at no extra charge.

As pictured, it was just taken out on a thorough test-ride (so it’s a bit dirty and has some grease smudges from us working on it), and it will be deep-cleaned before sale. We originally weren’t planning on selling this bike, hence the quick pictures of the bike. We will soon have pictures up of it in it’s ready-for-sale state, but if you want them sooner, simply e-mail us and you shall receive.

PS: That saddle will be swapped out for a new quilted racing saddle.
