Schwinn Cruiser Seven

One of my bicycles, quite impractical but gorgeous and probably my favourite of the lot. The Cruiser is a real head-turner and super on level roads. It is, however, hugely heavy to lift onto the car roof rack and I really struggle to get up hills and have to coast down many due to the limited gear range. So impractical but oh so pretty!
