perhaps people could post photos and serials to add to your serial project, like many of the other serial projects.

SJ, i just optimized all the mobile settings and tweaked it a bit. It should work now and I added a different background image. If you are in a barn and wondering what year a bike is you can check on your mobile.

The new site looks great Tim !
And the serial numbers are truly a gift to the hobby.
Lots of guys say they are working on a list, but that really doesn't help us out much, does it ?
Thank You,
Pete

ps: it was fun to see that my crusty Double Diamond had the first 1935 number (so far).
Here it is:

TIM - The updated site looks killler ....

It took many years and is still not complete. However, it is a very thorough start and should be of great assistance. I have published the list on my website. http://www.bicyclechronicles.com

If you can help fill the gaps please let me know! Enjoy!
It all works fine ... I really like the look of the site ... really nice .. thanks for sharing ... Frank

1939?

So this would be a 1939?
Badged Excelsior
But, it has a frame welded kickstand that may have been only introduced in 1946 (according to Re-Cycle's site...http://re-cycle.com/History/Schwinn/SwnB_Serial.aspx)?





Thanks for the great looking site, many of us would be lost without the research you and others that contributed.

OK Thanks Obi....I'm still confused but, appreciate the info.
Pre 48 confuses many of us....especially me.
That's why I'm here.

ok, so if I'm reading this right, this is a 1938?

Scott, it is a late 38 or early 39. I only have a couple A and B serial numbers, one being my brown super deluxe (B19111). However, I am starting to think that might be a 39. The only way to really tell is by the brake lever (large stamped) but even the catalog shows a DX with a shorty.

does it make a difference if this is the bike? it has flat braces on the front fender which I think is original. the rear fender has been changed I think.
