Ijust picked up a varsity I`m not into lightwieghts but this thing is lime green and looks neat it`s a 74.Is it worth hanging on to?

   RE:MISC:   Varsity posted by Bryant on 9/5/2002 at 11:30:48 AM
Once fixed up, you could sell it for about $40. If it fits, I would keep it and make it my beater bike. I have a 1972 Kool Lemon Varsity that just looks neat

   RE:RE:MISC:   Varsity posted by Jym on 9/5/2002 at 10:43:57 PM
Put upright handlebars and a big seat on it and you'll get $90 for it as a solid commuter

   RE:MISC:   Varsity posted by michael on 9/9/2002 at 8:59:10 PM
I have a Varsity from 1974 or '75...it's a huge frame...sure, it's heavier than today's bikes, but it still rides well, it's my everyday bike...almost every week, someone recognizes it as a Varsity, which is a feat, I spray painted it over Black...that was because it was originally lime green! (which I thought was truly ugly...) The Black is much better! Seriously though, the thing is a tank, and will outlive me for sure...all original equip except for the handle bars, those are not the racer ramshead style...

   RE:MISC:   Varsity posted by Richard on 9/15/2002 at 4:25:37 PM
I bought a "campus green" 71 varsity in extremely good condition for $12.50. It has Schwinn chrome fenders and rear rack. All stock Schwinn or Schwinn approved except for tires, tubes, and rear reflector. This bike has been ridden less than 100 miles and never seen a drop of water (a rare feat in the Seattle area). One would hope it was worth more than $50, but its probably not. In 74 Schwinn started importing varsitys from Japan.

FOR SALE:   Smith Motor Wheel / Smith Flyer posted by: Glenn on 9/3/2002 at 9:43:35 PM
Two glass "lantern slides", (advertising slides used in the silent film days), one for Smith Flyer, shows photo of a man and woman in 4 wheel S.F. buggy with logo and description. The other is for Smith Motor Wheel, shows photo of man's bicycle with Motor Wheel attached, plus logo and description. Both say Hayward's bicycle Repair Shop. Both have a crack in one glass that does not detract from the excellent images. They were framed in wood many years ago to protect them. Offers accepted.
