'Lil Knee Scuffer
Late 1979 Schwinn Spitfire… I picked this up from the original owner. It had been sitting in his shed for years. (Years of dust buildup) I finally took it all apart to detail it and service it. All the parts are dated correctly. (It even still has the little spacer on the rear bolt that holds the chain guard, which I haven’t seen in a long time). The only thing that was ever changed was the tires and pedals. The chain is what has me wondering…. I posted a picture of it… it also looks to have the year 079 stamped on a few of the links, on the opposite it has a “U” type symbol on some links. Could this be a year of manufacture? Has anyone heard of or seen a year stamped on a chain?
Can’t wait to detail it and reassembled it.. I will be adding new white wall knobby tires and if that is a original chain (dated) I plan to degrease/clean it and reinstall it.

The story of these two bicycles has an ending.
Very early Thursday morning, arrived at Memory Lane Fall 2022 Swap Meet ...
happened to see them posted on what is coming to ML Swap post, they did arrive and are now in my possession. Both 1982 24" Schwinn Cruiser bicycles, one still in the original box the other was assembled and has been gently ridden. Minty?
