Better pics will follow once I've cleaned it up, and I'll use my real camera.

Sweet one! Looks like a 64? Sure looks minty, more pics.

Give me the power and I'll move your thread to the Schwinn Lightweight section. ;)

Violet started in 65 on these but the rear der looks like it has the tag rivets. Early 65 most likely.

That sure is a nice example of the Violet version! Seat looks 100% correct, same as what's on my 65. The foam on the underside was shot from this being stored in an attic, in Arizona!

What are you using for a camera?
I can see from your photos that I need a better one.
Not so good pic of my '65 tourist.
Chain is sagging because I store them in the small/small combination to relax the springs in the r. der.

Glad to hear that my seat is correct.

Amazing bike @rollfaster, even the red on the badge isn't faded!

The whitewalls look really good on yours @Eric Amlie.... as for the camera, it's a Nikon Z7.
