    I got this one in a group of bikes I bought.
    It says Cruiser on the chain guard, but cannot find nothing like it in the catalog.
    The tires are Schwinn StingRay, but no banana seat or bars.
    The s.n. on the badge is 2571

    It's an 81. Here is a pic of mine. Seats on mine and yours not original. Your handlebars were replaced.

    The catalog is somewhat incomplete and only shows the 26" version and does not specify any of the frame sizes. Same with the middleweights that were available for 1981. Even the price sheet makes no mention of frame sizes.
