1973 Schwinn Orange Krate
Original frame paint. Last year of original Chicago built Krate line bicycles manufactured from 1968-1973. Refurbed and SOLD May 2010. The first and last time I ever want to buy, refurb, and sell one of these collectable Schwinn Krate and/or Sting Ray type bicycles. These Krate bikes and the parts for them are ridiculously overpriced in my opinion. It cost me so much for parts that needed to be replaced (seat, chainguard, hand grips etc.) that I barely made any profit for my labor, if not having just broke even. It didn`t sell on EBay since the Krate fans were drooling and way more interested in a so called "barn find" completely rusted rough condition 1968 first year Orange Krate that desperately needed a full restoration and parts replaced. That rusted bike sold for a hefty price....even though it looked like crap.....all because it was all original. This particular bicycle here had been converted to a 3 speed Sturmey Archer shifter and rear wheel from a Raleigh Chopper by the original bike shop that sold it new, most likely to avoid any liability since the US government in 1973 outlawed the 5 speed top bar Stik Shift and considered it dangerous, especially for boys, for obvious reasons. These Krate line bicycles were not manufactured for 1974 and later, not till the non-Chicago replicas were made decades later. Even though this particular custom reliable Sturmey-Archer of England 3 speed probably ran better than the clunky 5 speed derailler original version, the non-stock custom conversion killed it`s vintage value.
