Posted by: kevin TITLE: MIDDLEWEIGHT: 61 schwinn jag IV (coaster brake)???
has anyone ever seen a 61~ mark IV jaguar with coaster brakes and single speed.?... i did read somewhere that they came in 3 speed, 2 speed, and coaster. i~ve just never seen one, but i now have a chance to pick one up,(black), in good condition for $500.usd. . so do these exist, and is it a fair deal...?.

MarkIV jaguar is correct I have a black 3 speed. I am missing the front light and the front so called rat trap. I got it in 8th grade many moons ago.

Remember, he said "good condition." I don~t think any Schwinn Jaguar is worth $500 unless it~s near perfect - I see decent, presentable ones with little work to be done (and rather decent paint) going on eBay from $30-$150.

Mk IV is correct
with every cable, rack, and lamp, in sterile condition, $500 might not be too much- but I~m not a curator...

My list for 1961 shows the Schwinn Jaguar available in 2 or 3 speed or coaster. Doesn~t say Mark IV, just Jaguar. I would never pay $500 for one, but that is my personal opinion. I just sold a decent 1958 Schwinn Corvette with stainless fenders for $142.50 on eBay.
