I have been trying to attach vintage Schwinn lights & speedometer to my '54 Panther.
Anyone got a link to setting up the ole Schwinn Approved French Speedometer/Odometer?
The unit itself is gorgeous old chrome, and reads 3137 miles.
While we're at it: how in the H%*# do I remove my handlebars & stem, to install the Schwinn Approved headlight.
I've done my damndest to carefully break it down, WD40 etc. The stem & bars will not budge loose! AHRRRGH…

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

Timeless

Many Schwinn designs were timeless, which have kept their appeal to this day, even though some were fairly conservative. This lead to a broad appeal over the years, in addition to the advertising campaign drilled into the public's head "Schwinn Stands for Quality" which Joe Public believes to this day on all the old Schwinns.

I also believe the quality of paint and chrome, especially the forged parts, and even some of the stamped parts, make them easier to resurrect. Plus the frames were fairly well constructed with engineered lugs. I have beat on many trying to bring them back, and wonder myself how any kid could have bent it this bad in the first place. I've straightened two dozen over the years and have yet to destroy one. I've cracked them and re-welded, and they are still rideable now.

The universal nature of many parts, and the deep parts inventories that existed in many of the stores, continue to help supply the hobby even still today. The shear numbers of bikes distributed in the heydays makes Schwinn a universally accepted collectable ride today...who didn't have or know someone who had one?

That Panther is classy man!

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
