Summary

Summary

From its inception as Arnold, Schwinn & Co. in 1895, Schwinn has built what have arguably been the best and most desirable bikes in the United States. This new title in the Enthusiast Color Series offers a comprehensive overview of the great Schwinn bikes, with chapters devoted to the early history of the company and its bicycles, classic balloon-tire bikes of the 1930s and 1940s, stylish and groundbreaking lightweights and racers of the 1950s, and all those fabulous Sting-ray and Krate "muscle bikes" from the 1960s and swingin' '70s. In addition, the modern era of mountain bikes, road bikes, BMX bikes, and the return of the Black Phantom are also featured. All-color photography of bicycles in mint condition is supplemented with classic period print advertisements.
