You could be the proud owner of this used vintage Schwinn Sparta heavyweight cruiser bicycle. This bike was made by Schwinn for Chicago Cycle Supply sometime in the late 30s or early 40s and closely resembles other bikes in the Schwinn model line of the era. This single speed coaster brake equipped bike appears to be all original down to the tires and grips. This bike features unique fork truss mounds made only during this era of American bicycles. The blue paint is in good shape for it's age with minimal scratches and marks throughout the frame and fenders. There is some surface corrosion on the back of the front fender near the bottom. The wheels will need to be trued and the tires both have decent tread though the rear one appears to need a new tube as it currently does not hold air. The saddle has some tears in the leather. This bicycle has not been checked over by a mechanic and we would recommend a full tune-up before riding. This bike is being sold as-is. Please see photographs for details.
This bicycle is stored in an off site storage facility, if you wish to see this bike in person before purchasing please give us a couple days advance notice so we can have it pulled out of storage (a 25% refundable deposit is required for all bike showings).

We offer two different shipping services for our bicycles; economy and standard.
Economy: With this service all bicycles will be professionally boxed using approved packaging materials (including but not limited to bubble wrap, foam, paper, plastic spacers, cardboard tubes). The shipping cost reflects box sizes that do not meet the minimum shipping specifications for either UPS or FedEx. This option does not include an insurance guarantee or provide protection under eBay buyer protection as the box does not meet minimum specifications for shipping by UPS or FedEx. The minimum specification for shipping a box requires 3" of packing material around the bike itself. This size would make the box too large to ship UPS, FedEx, or USPS.
Standard: With this deluxe shipping option all bicycles will be professionally boxed using approved packaging materials (including but not limited to bubble wrap, foam, paper, plastic spacers, cardboard tubes) as well having a custom wooden crate built for the bicycle. Bikes packed under this option will be shipped in oversize boxes via freight truck. This option includes insurance and is covered under Ebay's Buyer Protection Plan.
We do not purchase bicycles outright, we do however take trade-ins toward the purchase of a new or used bicycle at any of our retail locations, all assessments and evaluations must be handled on site.
We only do bicycle assessments and evaluations through our retail locations, fees vary depending on the depth of assessment necessary.
This bicycle is available for local pick-up at no cost (WI sales tax apply to all in state purchases, local pick-up or shipped).
International buyers are responsible for all duties and fees. We will not falsify customs information; if you request such it will be reported to Ebay.
All bikes are professionally boxed and will be partially broken down to fit size requirements for shipping, some assembly and tuning may be required upon receiving.
