My mom bought this little Schwinn Bantam about 8 or 9 years ago at a local flea market because it ‘looked cute.’ It sat in her basement for years and in the meantime, my sister had 3 kids. Now, Giancarlo is perfect size for it and his birthday is right around the corner. This beautiful Schwinn will make a great rider for a young child. I cleaned it up and installed new tires and tubes.

The Schwinn Bantam was available for many years(this red one is from the mid 1970s) and it was something Schwinn called a convertible. With the current setup, it is a boys bike. The toptube can be removed and then it can be a girls bike. Great bike for a family, especially when handing bikes down from one child to another, as my sister will do.
