Limited Time “Schwinn Bicycles” Exhibit at the California Automobile Museum
During a time period known for muscle car and motorcycle fever, iconic and American-made Schwinn bicycles provided wheels and mobility for a generation of kids and youth growing up in the 1960s. The connection to automobiles is apparent as Schwinn built heavy-duty bikes for paper routes and cruisers with car names like Corvette, Jaguar and Speedster, to name a few. Starting on June 15, the California Automobile Museum is pleased to present a limited time exhibit that will showcase a variety of colorful, fun and nostalgic Schwinn bicycles with details like high rise handle bars, “banana seats,” shock absorbers, chrome springer front ends with smaller drum brake wheels, rear tires with white letter slicks and, of course, the “stik shifter” (bikes that mimicked the dragsters burning up the quarter mile). Appealing to all ages, the “Schwinn Bicycles” exhibit will remain on display through July 10, 2017. For more information about the “Schwinn Bicycles” exhibit or the California Automobile Museum in general, please call 916-442-6802 or visit www.calautomuseum.org.
