Description

Chris McManus poses with Joe Breeze’s 1937 Schwinn Excelsior X. Stripped of extraneous metal such as fenders, chainguard, racks and baskets, top tube “tank,” and kickstand, the bike weighed in at 48 pounds. Klunkers like this were king of the off road in Marin from about 1970 to 1976. Actually, people had been enjoying them off-road in Marin and elsewhere since they became available in the 1930s. At Pearl Pass’s false summit, 1979.
