I just picked up a '47 schwinn that still has the orginal front bridgestone tire, blackwall, in good shape. We I got the bike the tires were still full of air and the tire doesn't have any major cracks or tread is still good. Can send pictures if interested. The rear tire is probably 5 years newer, also BFG buts its a nobby tire.

MISC:   Firestone Cruiser - Giveaway posted by: Don Kidwell on 6/14/2006 at 11:53:56 PM
Some years ago I got a Firestone Cruiser in pretty ragged out but very restorable condition. It was my intention to restore the bicycle to its original glory, but, as sometimes happens, other things came up. First was a 1931 Ford and then it was a 1951 Studebaker. The poor bicycle got moved further and further to the back of the garage and it's time to bite the bullet and put the cruiser in the hands of someone who will give it restoration attention.
The cruiser is up for adoption to anyone who will pay costs of shipping it.
I know virtually nothing about bicycles and can describe it by the bright metal badge on the front that says Firestone Cruiser Made in U.S.A. It was originally maroon and off white, but some soul in the past brush painted it dark blue. I removed some of the blue paint to find the original paint with the original Firestone name and decorations still there. The only things that seems to be missing is the headlight.
As for shipping costs, I live in Northern Virginia in zip 20176.
Who wants it?
