    Picked this April of 1980 built Schwinn Cruiser 5 Speed today. A bit of surface rust that I can buff out pretty easily. 5 Speed with rear drum brake.All complete but needs tires, chain, cables and the seat is a bit crooked. Will clean up well.

    Looking for a ballpark on what to list it for. The only ones on ebay are in much better shape and round the $900 range

    Awesome! I got it for next to nothing so I'm not losing out. Figured it'd be around the $250-350ish range. Didn't even think to check the sold ebay ads

    Aside from the wheels it's got much much less rust than the Speedster I just did. Lots of Naval Jelly, White vinegar, and elbow grease

    Trippy! I've been laid up due to a minor surgery all week and actually watched the trilogy yesterday!
