The black eighty one that I posted at the top of the page had the same sticker from Orange Schwinn.

Sadly I forgot to get the close up before the new owner picked it up a few hours ago. You can see it in this pic I took for my ad. Love those blue ones....

I know this one is probably too new for this thread also but I'll put it on here for "Cruiser Knowedge" purposes. Is this wal-fart China material or....? Would like to know. I got this at a rummage sale yesterday. Threw the tires on and grips. Rides good.

Looks like a Taiwan built mid to late 80's. Look for a 4 digit number on the head badge, the last number should tell you the year.

Here’s a ‘77 I recently had-

And here is a ‘79 I bought from the original owner and have since built to my liking-

The Tange fork and Ukai rims were added in its day. The guy I got it from remembered picking it out when he was 12. It was originally red. In the ‘90’s he had it powder coated. Stem, bars, crank set up, and seat are my additions.
I usually shy away from repaints, but for some reason, this bike gets a pass from me.

That's a cool factoid also. I can't even remember when Schwinn got bought out or went bankrupt or whatever. '88 maybe? Maybe I better break out my old bike books and read them again.
