Your tricycle collection cannot be complete without a Schwinn model parked in your garage. For the better part of the 20th century, this brand dominated the bicycle industry, churning out beautiful, practical machines. It all started as a dream in the mind of German-born Ignaz Schwinn, who had worked in bicycle factories in Europe before he emigrated to Chicago. The founding of his own bicycle company happened when there was a bicycle boom in the US. Handed down from generation to generation of Schwinns, the company continued to thrive. Over time Schwinn became a household name.
The company may have been recently bought out but there are some products that Schwinn will always be remembered for. If you don’t have a vintage Schwinn Tricycle in your garage, you probably know someone who does. Here are some of the more popular models you may have seen:
