I live for the CABE
I blew the picture way up and still can't read it. I think it's a 20" wheel bike. I know my derailleur is no where close to the rim edge like that one is. Also, the head badge covers most of the head tube. Nice bike.
Seats way high ?

Wore out three sets of tires already!
All day I was thinking I wish I had another pic to post to keep this conversation moving....
So I had to work on this one when I got back home.

Freed up the speedometer head and took it for a spin to make sure it didn't need anything else major.

Has some very dry headset and crank bearings for sure....and a loose spoke or 2 in the front. Not bad!

Does anybody know if this 81 coaster was supposed to have the gigantor Messenger seat that's on it, or was it the more slim standard molded Messenger?? Looks like the right era seat, but odd to me for Schwinn.

Is that a padded slipcover over the original seat? Sure looks like one in the pic. Should have the same Mesinger that's on all the 81 Cruisers

That is not the original saddle. It was added at some point in time.

Riding a '38 Autocycle Deluxe
Looks like a 20" to me.
I'm trying to read what it says on the chain guard in the middle...?
Right? But there’s a motorcycle next to it ?

That is a 20 inch bike you can tell by the distance between the top and cantilever bars at the head tube.

Look Ma, No Hands!
Nice !! Is it a 26” ? Looks small in the pic ?

The middle of the chain guard says “mini mini” klunker 5, he also made a matching 24” that says “mini” klunker 5 and he just redid his 26” klunker 5 so they all match.
