Garage Sale Find: Baby Blue Schwinn Collegiate





Ideally, all garage sale bicycles would have been ridden lightly, maintained religiously and stored tenderly as they waited for me and my twenty dollar bill but that just isn't the reality of the garage sale bikes. More often, they have gone feral like this slumbering beast. Despite the deferred maintenance, this old girl is difficult to resist having been born in Chicago then licensed in Los Angeles. A distinguished provenance of two top American cities.
