About this bicycle
Made between 1955 and 1962, the Schwinn Tiger became one of the most popular and affordable bicycles sold in America. The Schwinn’s famous Cantilever frame, sleek looks, and a wide range of add-ons, such as the mud flap and reflectors, made the bicycle so desirable. For only a few extra dollars, thorn resisting tubes, tractor tires or caliper brakes could be included. This Coppertone-color Tiger was purchased in 1964 for only $66.95 … included in this price was 1 large mud flap for 95 cents, a small mud flap for 60 cents and 2 reflectors for 10 cents each.
