Town and County Triple
« on: May 09, 2017, 12:52:56 PM »
This was in the Pella, Iowa Tulip Time festival parade this past weekend. Pretty neat! Obviously modified a bit from stock and probably repainted.

Announcer said there were only 40 of these made by Schwinn but he struck me as rather dingy so who knows...

There is an original one at Northtowne in Cedar Rapids. I have 2 and another friend has one. So that makes at least 5 in Iowa. My unsubstantiated number is they made 200. (Spellcheck can't figure my misspelling out.)  Also have 2 complete Town & Country tandems, and 1 parts tandem. Still need fenders & rims.

There's at least one triplet here in PA. One of our members has it.

Heard back from him, no luck... He thinks there is another guy that shows up at the OBC (Old Bikes Club) swaps that might have a set. I think I know who he's talking about, he bought a Welterweight from him.

Disneyland has a T&C quad.  It originally had painted fenders and pinstriped frame.  If you see it today it is all the parts are changed and it is repainted.
