Welcome to 1977. Gas was $0.65, Jimmy Carter was in office, and Schwinn bikes ruled the road. This small 10 speed Schwinn Varsity Camelback comes with the original bar tape, Schwinn Approved GT500 rear derailleur, old school reflectors, and Schwinn Approved Comfort Form saddle, and also received some much needed updating.

We replaced the old, dry-rotted tires with new CST Super High Pressure white tires, replaced the old, dry brake pads with new Serfas pads and replaced the 40 year old cables & housing with new Jagwire shift and brake cables & housing.

This bike is ideal for a small rider. Ride in style on this piece of history. Take it to school/work/train/farmer's market. Whatever you do, GET OUT AND RIDE.

About Shortbus Bicycles, LLC
Our goal is to take bicycles out of the waste stream, restore them, and get them into the hands of people who want to ride. We especially love customizing old steel road bikes!

We take pride in our restorations, thoroughly cleaning each bike and often putting on many NEW parts. Each bike is tuned and tested before it is sold so you can be sure the bike is safe to ride.

If you purchase one of our bikes, we will tune it up once per year free of charge! In addition, we are available for repair work and full restorations. Though we do not stock every part, we are able to get what you need to get your bike going again.

We often buy bikes and accept trades, so please contact us if you have any you would like to sell. (Please include photos when reaching out to us.)

We are located about 1.5 miles from the Milford train station and are able to bring bikes to South Norwalk Monday-Friday between 7:30 and 3:00 pm.

10% off for students, teachers, firefighters, police and military!
