Hello- I'm new here and I have an old Schwinn Excelsior that I picked up in a friend's old barn about 15-20 years ago. It's pretty much all there (mother-in-law was good enough to throw away the fender's ), but rough. I'll post some pictures of it in a day or two (I can post pictures here, right? I have a photobucket account) When I first got it (around 1993) I did some research, but the WWW wasn't really going then. Somebody did tell me that the manufacturing date was on the crank. I did remove the crank and there was an "38" on it (it's taken apart now). I assume it's a '38 Schwinn Excelsior. The serial number is B86731. Any info on it would be appreciated. I've been thinking about getting it back together to get it back on the road. I will need some parts (tires, pedals, handle bars, gooseneck, bearings etc) and it needs a paint job (would like it to look original, but may just throw some paint on it to get it back on the road). Paul Here's some pictures (will post more later of when it was pulled from the barn): It does have a kick stand that mounts behind the rear tire (not in picture).
