I Miss My Schwinn Continental

I miss my Schwinn Continental; it’s back in Illinois at my parent’s house. Well, I hope it is, if my dad hasn’t done anything with it. For what it’s worth, that is a great little bike. They might weigh a lot, being that it seems to be made out of old gas pipes. These  bikes are old Chicago Built Schwinns. The bike was always nice to ride, never seeming to have any problems. I keep seeing a lot of Continentals around Eugene, which just makes me think of mine sometimes. These are the only photos of the bike I can easily find.

  1. Reminds me of my Schwinn Collegiate. Nice bike to have on a windy day. And it’s safe to say that Schwinn will never make either bike, ever again. If I remember correctly, the old Chicago plant made its own tubing from flat steel stock.
