"Schwinn Tiger
Finest quality [...] middleweight with forged steel fork, chrome plated fenders, chrome plated tubular rims, 4-coat baked-on finish, Superior whitewall nylon cord tires.... Flamboyant red [or] radiant coppertone... "
(from https://bikehistory.org/catalogs/1966.html#tiger)


Is it "flamboyant red", "radiant coppertone" or perhaps terracota? In any case, it is in great mechanical shape, with greased internals and original paint, chrome and parts (other than inner tubes and nuts). Beautiful Rocket Ray rear rack; plastic "S" spring seat from Mesinger.

If you want to ride it, you may want to get

* new tires (to fit the S-7 Schwinn size, for instance the Sunlite Street S-7 in Amazon, about $20; current tires can be used, but they have cracks).
* a longer seatpost (the current one is just 7 inches long).

$250.
