Hi!
I have been offered this bike, but i know nothing about it. What year is it from? How original is it? What's missing in the tank? Is it hard to find parts? What should the bike cost? Are there decals to find? I have only seen pictures of it. Thanks for input!

The bike is actually a middleweight bike.looks like a 1962 model and all correct.it's missing the headlight and horn unit in the tank.I would guess a value of about 300 to 500 depending where you are.Parts are fairly easy to find.

Paint looks nice - you'll be stylin'. I've been riding my middleweight (Corvette) a lot lately. If the rain lets up, I'll do 10 miles on my lunch break today.

Hardest part to find for that are the 'crutch tip' reflectors on the rear rack, and you have 'em!

Is that Jaguar in Sweden or is it in the US?
Judging from the type of plating on the fender braces I'd say it's a 1961 model. Can't see if the kickstand is chrome, as in 1962, or how many rivets the seat has. I believe the 1960 model still had the long fork dart pins all the way to the end of the fork. Head badge should be the plastic starburst but the pictures do not show the badge in detail. The rear carrier looks to be the 1961 version also.

Interesting. Island schwinn's estimated value might be just a few shipping dollars short then.
