Anyone have info on Mead serial numbers? Finally found additional numbers on the bottom bracket of my recent buy. It's R13866 over a larger stamped 26.
Any info appreciated.

Who knows? Everything I have read says that nobody really knows whether Schwinn owned Mead or not. Lots of back and forth here on the CABE, but nothing for sure.

Mead sourced out bikes to several manufacturers. From what I've seen, most tend to be Schwinn built, while Manton Smith, Westfield & possibly Colson(A tandem popped up that may or may not have the original Mead badge on it) also built them.

Good info here:
