Chicago built bike. 22" frame. Step-thru model. 5 speed. Seems to be all original besides tires, and possibly front reflector. Built in April of 1979. Shifts great. Ready to ride! Chrome is in great condition for a 45 year old bicycle. Some stickers showing wear.

From Schwinn Catalog...

"The new Shimano FF System of derailleur control is a revolutionary gearing innovation that utilizes a freewheel mechanism combined with the front chainwheel. This allows the chain to continue to revolve even after pedaling has stopped. Shifting can be done smoothly and effortlessly anytime the bike is in motion, whether coasting, back-pedaling- or without pedaling at all. The FF System gives unmatched performance in gear shifting."

What this means is the chain is always moving, even when you're not pedaling.
