Here’s a nice 69 Schwinn Grape Krate 5 speed. It was made in September of 69 (#JD05484). Schwinn didn’t actually make the Grape Krate that year, so this is a reproduction to look like the 68. The parts are all 1968. The frame was powdercoated purple and new decals applied. The handle bars, stem and bolts, crank, sprocket, seat post and clamp,bolt and nut, head set bearing races, complete springer, front and rear fenders, front and rear rims, shifter, rear wheel protector and sissy bar and chain guard were all re-chromed. All the original spokes were removed and polished and put back and the wheels trued, and the front atom hub polished. The front tire is a new Schwinn and the rear tire is a new Schwinn raised white letter Slik.
This is a beautiful reproduction. Check out the pictures below and the Krates for sale below that.
