In 1938 Schwinn introduced the Superior and Paramount line of Lightweight Track Racers and Touring Bikes. The Paramount was the top of the line and the Superior was considered second to top but still an elite bicycle offered at consumer prices. The Paramount and Superior lines were Schwinn’s top offerings to an ever growing global lightweight market! This 1940 Schwinn Superior is Classic Fixed Gear Track Bike with Nice Patina, Features Schwinn Superior light weight components, a fillet-brazed chrome-molybdenum frame ,Wood Racing Wheels, and Tubular Tires.

She is a Quality Schwinn Construction production Racer with Black Paint and remnants of Green and Red pin striping. The Frame measures 54 cm center to center or 56cm center to top, Pretty sure this is what would be considered a 22 inch Schwinn Frame. Beautiful Original Wheels are Wooden Lobdell Peaked Center Wooden 28″ x 1″ Racing Rims laced with Torrington double butted spokes spokes laced to Schwinn Dural Front Hub and Track Hub.
