Finally riding a big boys bike
Hello everyone just picked up a weird Schwinn. As you can tell by the picture it closely resembles a 1955 jaguar but the serial number B71467 Indicates it to be a 1957. Schwinn jaguar looked way different in 1957 being mark ll And definitely did not use that chain guard. Would like to know what the experts think. And yes it has the S2 rims with brake bridge as well as an allloy SA hub that says 1954. Thank you in advance

That's one of the first 1954 Jaguars, October 1953 serial stamping date. The very first batch had September serial numbers and those had both rear fender/brake brackets. The frames were already built and then they were modified for the Jags rear caliper. Does yours have both brackets?

Well I have to look at it again but so far the hub is an alloy Sturmney Archer and the numbers stamped say 54

You know,I hardly see Schwinn cruisers in green. Mostly lightweights.
Exactly. Common colors Black, Red, Black/Red combo, Sometimes Blue (usually lightweight also). I dig it's not even a dark like hunter green & from what I can see maybe on the blue side. Blue+Yellow=Green FTW
