    I'm Tony and my Wife and I have a Schwinn problem called Schwannism. We have a couple of non schwinns but are crazy about all balloon tire ones especially prewar. Here's a picture of my wife with her favorite, 1941 schwinn built Chicago cycle supply Cadillac.

    Hello all, I recently came across this schwinn bicycle. It caught my eye immediately.... i had never seen a bike that looked the way it did... it was very "old school."
    Im only 26 years old... and a beginner vintage bikes lol.

    I have... what it looks to be a 1982 schwinn sports tourer. Its marked with
    Chicago 60639 as well as made in Taiwan.
    The frame has a serial number reading "g0881"

    The crank, sproket and gears look to be made in japan... anyways i was hoping to find a schwinn conesiouer on this forum... and figure out what it is that i have come across.

    Please pm me... or text me at

    (480) 999-6900. My name is travis.. im in glendale. arizona

    Hello! I'd say it was a Schwinn B6 with the wrong fenders, crank and sprocket. I love the front and rear Schwinn drum brakes. :)Barry

    Hi,
    I'm new to the site and the Schwinn world. I picked up a Schwinn Whizzer last week and excited to get started on the restoration. The seller said it was a 1942, but I figured I would run the numbers by you guys. Number under the frame A99194. Engine # H 127338.

    He was only off by 10 years--1952. You should probably post in the motorized section to get a better response. V/r Shawn
