What Are You Missing
There are many people that collect these Cruisers and the sell prices on eBay have been high for well over a decade. This one is interesting if you follow the production time on the last bikes to roll out of Chicago. After the strike Schwinn must have been somewhat crippled if you note the serial stamping dates and the actual build dates on the head badges. December 1980 serial numbers (stamped during the strike) were used at least half way thru 1981. This piece has a November 1981 serial number stamping and it wasn't built until May 12, 1982, at least 163 days after the head tube was stamped with a serial number. It's also in decent condition.
Why does a beat up mid 60's Sting Ray frame sell for $375?
