Bonus Sunday - Schwinn takes a trip to Disneyland 1965/66

Welcome to Bonus Sunday. Today we’ve got a neat little catalog. “Schwinn takes a Trip to Disneyland".

Schwinn takes a trip to Disneyland Entire Catalog - 71mb

Here's a few select pages.  On Friday’s post I couldn’t find the date for this catalog, well heck, it’s right on the first inside page! Maybe I need glasses… "Copyright 1966", however, I think these photos were taken in 1965, check out last photo in this post.

Ask any Mermaid You Happen to See... What's the Best Tuna?” Chicken of the Sea of course! These bikes are great!

This set of photos has pretty ladies, pretty bikes and the “old” Tomorrowland in its golden years, I love it!

From the tandem bikes section on page 15, this Main Street photo reveals it was taken in 1965. I imagine the rest of the photos are from 1965 as well, probably the fall when the park was closed Monday’s and Tuesday’s.

I hope you download and enjoy Schwinn;s trip to Disneyland catalog, there's some great vintage photos and some great vintage bikes. Check back next week for Schwinn's "Diamond Jubilee" Catalog from 1970 photographed at Knott's Berry Farm. It's just as fantastic as the Disneyland catalog, maybe a little better because it has my first bike in it, a Sting-Ray in Campus Green with a "Slik" rear tire!

Man, is that fantastic! Love the Pics of the classic Schwinns. I also had a Stingray bike which my dad converted from my old “regular” Schwinn bike. Banana seat, “chopper” handlebars, new paint job (candy apple red) and there you have it!

OK, now I want to ride a bike around Disneyland. Early in the morning before the park opens. I can dream can’t I?

I was a fool. I should have bought a 2 seater bike. According to that Main Street pic that bike was a real chick magnet!

Major Pepperidge said...

When I was a kid, Schwinn was THE bike to have. I still remember that Christmas morning when my brother and I came downstairs to find a red Stingray (for my brother) and a blue Stingray (for me).

Why aren't banana seats back in style?? Why isn't Schwinn cool with people today?

Dave said...

This is fantastic! I agree with the Major, Schwinn was the cool bike to have, no doubt about it. It's amazing seeing these classic bikes against the backdrop of "Tencennial" era Disneyland.

Suh-weet! I always wanted a look inside the Schwinn catalog.

I had the Schwinn Speedster, shown in the COTS image. Mine was a"Flamboyant Red" 3-speed. It was still in my parents' garage ten years after I moved out--until my mom sold it to a delighted young couple at a garage sale.

Very Nice. I am looking forward to seeing the Knott's catalog!
