1980 Schwinn Cruiser 5 26

Black Beauty

Built in Chicago in 1980, sold at Orange Cycle near SoCal's famous Strand, then returned to her Chicago home, she rides like a luxurious tank.  A true strandie, she has a high quality aftermarket tubular fork, Shimano Positron shifter, drum brake with a Dia Compe lever, and the most comfortable seat I've ever parked my ass on.  I first saw her on CL, and failed to get a response to my first message to the seller.  A little more angling and a lot of patience paid off, and I brought her home for $30 less than the initial ad.  Had the ad not shown evidence of a headtube serial number, I wouldn’t have given her a second look.
