Schwinn: The best present ever
Our friend Don Rauf has a present for anyone who loves old bikes.
Don wrote a fantastic new book about everything Schwinn. The stories are great, the photos and old advertisements look terrific.
The book has a pretty comprehensive history of the Schwinn family and company. There are some famous bikes like the one from Pee Wee’s Big Adventure or Eddie Munster’s monster Sting Ray. There are crowd favorite balloon-tire cruisers from the ‘50’s, Sting-Ray and Krate bikes from the ‘60’s and the road bike collection from the ‘70’s and 80’s.
Want a personal connection to this book? Come in to the shop, see and touch one of the dozen or so bikes whose pictures grace the pages! Yep, there’s a lot of our little museum in this book, even our Black Phantom bar stool.
