Schwinn has been an American institution since 1895, when first founded in Chicago, Illinois. Pretty much everyone can remember their first Schwinn bicycle.
The Schwinn classic cruiser bikes were first made popular in the 1950s. With the whitewall tires and the padded seat, this is a bike that many from that era can relate to.
The popularity of this style of cruiser held through the 1980s, and many of today’s adults learned to ride on one just like the Sanctuary Cruiser 7.
This remake of the popular Schwinn cruiser has 7 speeds and shifts via twist grips on the handlebars and the high-performance rear-wheel derailleur gears are made by Shimano, long considered to be the best in the trade.
The frame of the Sanctuary Cruiser is all steel and the wheels are made of a lightweight aluminum alloy.
This bicycle comes in a deep red with a black seat with the white Schwinn Sanctuary logo painted in script on the chain guard.
