1955 Schwinn Gold Continental Clubman - 21" Frame - 3 Speed. Brooks saddle, early "Made in Switzerland" engraved Weinmann sidepulls, GB alloy stem, unique (for Schwinn) crankset.

English made three piece crankset. mustache style handlebars..-this Clubman version was modeled after British club bikes of that time and is much rarer.

Bike has been fully (meticulously...every part, nut and bolt cleaned and inspected) overhauled; frame and fork alignment checked (very
good), all bearing surfaces cleaned inspected and repacked with fresh grease .new tires and tubes. Bike is all original except new
tires and tubes! Note the Continental was one of the most expensive of Schwinn bikes only below the Paramount. The Continental
Clubman is quite rare and is seldom seen, would be a fabulous addition to any serious Schwinn collectorll! these Clubman's are very hard to find especially in this condition and being all original (except tires). Bike has been test ridden, gears shift nicely and is very smooth a pleasure to ride.
