Default Re: Difference? Middleweight/balloon Schwinn

There is a difference between the heavyweight & middleweight frames... It's really noticeable when you look at the fender bridge on the frames; The heavyweight frames are noticeably wider there because of the ballon tire fenders.
Also, there were mostly heavyweight bikes made in the 1950's, & mostly middleweight's made in the 1960's. Schwinn made a big return to the ballon tire cruisers in the mid 70's.
