Episode 4 showcases a rare, antique Schwinn Superior bicycle built over a hundred years ago. By showcasing a part of biking history, this episode is a departure from the recent bike repair oriented videos.
The Schwinn Superior has an overall design that is surprisingly modern despite being built in 1909! Certain details show the age, however: glue-on tires that fit wooden rims, a wire-held skip tooth chain, an ancient Mesinger brand leather saddle, and more.
The origins of the bike, and how the master mechanic came to acquire it are discussed, along with speculation on how much it may be worth.
