Look Ma, No Hands!
Head badge is 1908, so an '88 or maybe '98.

I'm not concerned with authenticity of components at this point, I just freaking love this bike.

It fits me. I love the straight bar, they seem to be rare on Heavy-Duti's.
More than that, it is built like a tank.
Check out that waist compared to a 1965 HD KS.

I have one other mystery Schwinn but I'll ask about her later.

Thanks Schwinn Family, happy Thanksgiving!

These were specific one color and changed colors by the year.

Listen to this biggest pile of internet BS that you could ever walk thru! Built since 1932 without change? Steering wheel? Bwa-ha-ha! 🤣


Make sure you wipe your feet after watching and listening to this vid.

In 1988 the Heavy Duti would have been a cantilever that is a 1998.

I never did look at the serial number after looking at the bike and the head badge. Looking at the serial number, it starts with F98. So that’s June 1998. I didn’t think these later serial numbers really meant anything, but that would match up with a headbadge. i’ve never really seen a serial number on the later pieces that would possibly be a date code.

You think the frame is that old GT? I'd say 2008.

Wow! It shows a guy who's supposed to be the narrator, but the voice is obviously a computer generated sales spiel that doesn't even match up! I wonder which shadowy corner of the internet this came from?

I have a buddy who has a contract to clean and replace the bikes at the plants around here in Houston and they all look identical to this one, same color, same setup etc. They're good to make customs out of....
