Schwinn History

On October 22, 1895 Adolph Arnold and Ignaz Schwinn incorporated Arnold, Schwinn & Company in Chicago, IL. At one point Schwinn was about as American as apple pie. It is by far the most well known American bicycle manufacturer and many older models are highly sought after by collectors. The company was helmed by someone with the last name Schwinn for 97 years. The history of Schwinn is the history of cycling in America.
