Can anyone give me some info on this child seat that I found many years ago? What year? What bike did or could it go on?

1970s maybe late 1960s. Adjustable to most any bike. Very dangerious to use and I wouldn't put a child in one. Make it a shelf collectable and do not use it. Roger

I had one on a beater, used as a rack. It would hold a full paper grocery bag!

I'm thinking that's a 50's vintage. In the 60's they were chromed round tubing. More stylish but less padding. ;)

70s, campus green wasnt around in the 50s. Had a few of these, always came on 70s 3 speeds. The Schwinn stamped logo is also 70s era script.

Been painted with green rattle can paint. I can't believe that was being sold in the 70's. Maybe at yard sales. ;)

Further investigation. Here's the 71 version. How sweet is that?

I was born in '71 and dad had on on his Varsity of the same era. I turned out pretty ok, except for my predilection for Studebakers :/ I assume his was originally black, as he kept the cool script kickplates when he got rid of it... they make a cool way to mound Wheaties plates if you trim them down. Looks sorta official with that Schwinn script on the back.

Now days you'd probably have to have race car restraints and an air bag on child carriers! :(
