BFGoodrich Schwinn Badge

Details

In the 1930s, The Schwinn Bicycle Company offered a line of their high end bikes to a few independent dealers in the U.S., among them the B.F. Goodrich auto store chain. Goodrich was so impressed with the bikes that they eventually partnered with Schwinn on a line of private label bikes. Goodrich remained in the bike business until 1960 when it sold back to Schwinn.

As it turned out, the pre-war Schwinn's were considered the best handling of these old style bikes and were ideally suited to a new style of off-road riding being pioneered in Marin County, Calif. by a group of gentlemen including Joe Breeze, Gary Fisher, Charlie Kelly and Tom Ritchey. 

Below, one of the originators of the mountain bike craze, Charlie Kelly riding his modified 1941 Schwinn BFGoodrich in 1973 California.
