I had a pump daisy! I always pumped it up more than 10x as boys do thinking it shot harder or faster. Never did wear that thing out. Got it as an early teen for Christmas but I don't remember what ever happened to it.My 10th Birthday was on a Friday the 13th. My Birthday present was a Daisy BB gun an it was a lemon!
Did yours have US Royal Riders? Those were of the period, but I thought the balloon Jaguars came with Schwinn "Monsoon" tires. But you don't see many of those either.I owned a faded red one 10 years ago. I think I sold it at Ann Arbor swap. Nice riding bike for sure.
Really rare to find with original US Royal Rider tires.
I just went back and checked and you're right! I never noticed that before.I had the og us royal rider tires that were pretty dry rotted. I think I sold them with the bike.
The Schwinn pre-release ad stated whitewall royal riders. Later catalog descriptions listed optional black royal riders.
I think Royal Riders are correct for 1953/54.

There's no registry, but there's some good information in this thread:
It would be interesting to see how many of these there actually are, but nobody's put in the time to start a registry and keep it updated. Maybe when I retire.Ok lets see if anybody can help with this. I have a couple of 53/54 Jaguars, both have both types of fender mounts in the rear factory, I have seen 4 (owned 3 of these) over 30 yrs., first I bought a 53 cantilever frame I thought someone had welded a hand brake hoop over the og fender bracket...thecabe.com
