FOR SALE:   schwinn 1963 posted by: mike b on 4/27/2004 at 7:46:44 AM
i found the weirdest schwinn frame the serial says 1963 but the problem is it looks like a normal schwinn but the seat stays are like a fastback and the cross bars are the weird part thier not attached to the seat stays and are strate not gently swooping like all i have seen please if you have info tell me i would really apperate it thanks

   RE:FOR SALE:   schwinn 1963 posted by Gordon on 4/27/2004 at 12:18:07 PM
Sounds like a Typhoon. Does it have a bolt on kickstand instead of the usual welded housing?

   RE:FOR SALE:   schwinn 1963 posted by Josh Martin on 5/11/2004 at 2:50:22 AM
Sounds more like a Tornado. On early Typhoons the cross bars are conected to the rear fork like a cantilever only they are straight were as a tornado has the cross bar welded just below the rear fork tube and the bars are paralell to the ground. I'm going to try and post a phot of one on this web site. E-mail me and I can send you a picture too..
