I'm assuming you mean at what date were they discontinued? All I know if they were still being used on some bikes in 1953, but I believe that was probably one of the last years.

Hello. I am curious to value of a shifter Schwinn Corvette in poor condition. The bike is all original, but will have to be completely restored. Thanks.

poor condition is a very subjective term. my advice always is look at finished auctions on eBay. this always tells you how much someone did pay. find several in your basic condition and option level because sometimes they go high sometines they go low. be precise on the options because some seemingly insignificant part can bring up, or the lack can bring down, the value. find an average price and add around $50-$60 for shipping. this is the rough value of your bike. rough complete should be around the $100.00 range on a corvette. e-mail me if you like with pictures and I'll have a better idea.
P.S. no i'm not interested in it.

You may mean two-speed kickback Bendix or Sturmey-Archer 3... does anyone know which is rarer? Year will have a large impact also. No doubt the early ones (50s) are more in demand. I sold a kickback 63 (with the sunburst headbadge) for $95 that cost $60 to ship from IL to CA- and its paint was lousy. Guess I must be a collector at heart cause the ones I've let go, I miss. Need a bigger basement.

I have a '63 Schwinn Corvette that I was uncertain of when I paid $20 for it at a secondhand store; it's a weathered OG Flamboyant Red w/ decals still intact, lightweight 'centerhump' rims w/ a Bendix redband coaster brake hub, chrome/red chainguard, and missing the front carrier rack, rear fender bracket, & headbadge that may have been a sunburst.

Probably an English 3-speed. Post your question under the English Roadster topic. The people there can help.

I bought a red one new in 1963 at the local Coast to Coast hardware store. I think the price tag was $39.95. Red or black were the choices. Beautiful paint. Armstrong was a Raleigh Industries marque at that time. Did you date yours by the Sturmey-Archer hub?
