Just picked this bike up, all original, serial checks out. I've gathered the blue is extremely rare, especially in this condition.

I have one too. See mine. I am blue Klunker 5. All of the naysayers did not believe Klunker 5 was in the blue color scheme that they came in black and red. What is your badge number and serial letter/number?

From Blue Klunker 5:

Here is my Schwinn Cruiser 5. All original built in February 1980.

All original? Built in Feb 1980? Nah, something is off base here and not adding up.

Surfboard fork darts were first issued on the 81 models, 80 had the standard fork dart. Your head badge stamping with the build date looks like 2988. Late 1978 build? And the front hub is dated 79, or is that a 78 stamping? Not quite all original huh? The bars, stem, crank, front caliper and possibly the fork have dates on them. The head tube component had the serial number stamped on them prior to being used to build a frame, the date associated to the serials is the date the serial was stamped and it has nothing to do with any build dates. Better check out the date on the other parts. My best guess is that's a 1981 model with a lost or leftover head tube piece and a swapped out front wheel and head badge.

Think there is a separate thread for those stock Cruiser 5's, this is a Klunker thread!, vintage Mt. bikes!, here's my new build ( probably change a few more parts ) 1935 Wards frame.

Almost done building this one. Mid ‘30’s Shelby frame. Redline forks. Araya 7x hoops. 401 Flight cranks. Rear drum hub works great. Still need to install the front drum hub, but it’s a nice rider for now
