The only way to tell if it is a real "California Cruiser" is to check the serial number!

I saw a post recently on FB where a guy was selling silk screen kits for painting chain guards, so things are not always as they may seem to be?
BTW, the California Cruiser was sold just before I started working at a Manhattan Beach, California Schwinn Dealer in 1977. They were quickly discontinued because of a copyright issue over the name.

This is a real California Cruiser (Sept. 76), they all came with the winged chain guard and mag sprocket, even the first Spitfires, 77 came with a mag sprocket.
