Cruisin' on my Bluebird
So I just went back through this thread, and the head badge numbers I could see (maybe three, but one of them I'm not 100%) date from the second half of 1981, so now it looks like the Sidewinder was a mid-year introduction like the Klunker 5, and the white version was dropped for 1982. So this leaves me with a couple of questions:
(1) Has anybody got a silver one with an '81 head badge stamp and does it have the early decals?
(2) Does anybody have a complete set of '81 Schwinn Reporters? The Klunker 5 was introduced in the Reporter and Schwinn would have wanted to publicize a new model as much as they could, so there must have been something about the Sidewinder, if it was introduced mid-year.

Not sure this is what you're looking for, but here's what I have.

Between the ‘81 ratty white frame and my ‘83 chestnut that @Cruiserdude94 and I picked up at a swap, one of them came originally with the Brooks. Not sure which one it was on. He kept it with his as I didn’t want it for mine.
