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.

Nice motorbike! If the SN# is under the crank, it could be older then 1952, but not older then 1948. Schwinn did weird things with the Whizzer serial numbers. I am not an expert, and Freqman1 is probably right.

My 1964 Schwinn Typhoon that I saved from a scrapyard

The ORIGINAL hand grip from the right side. The left grip was the only thing missing on this bike when I saved it. The grips that are on right now are a set from Wal-Mart (until I can find a match for this one).

Hello schwinnaphiles! Lets not forget the 1974 schwinn continental in chestnut brown! Freash bar wrap and the cream tread is just for fun! Gum walls would be more correct. For when you need to do more than ride around town! For when you need to ride to the next town! The black 79 continental is a custom gravler! Continental frames have big potential I always thought!

Wow!
Thanks, Scott!

Though, I love bicycles in all forms new and old from around the World, my first love, was a Schwinn.
So, when I got into this crazy hobby, of course it had to be a Schwinn, and I never looked back.
Now I've had to rent a storage unit, which totally goes against my grain, and I live in fear that the Auction Hunters will be picking through my stuff.
I can't seem to stop. Everytime I turn on the computer, I see a bike or a part that I just can't live without.
I guess recovery starts with acceptance.
Hello, everyone.
My name is Marty, and I am a certified Schwinnaholic.

I'm obsessed with all the cool head badges found on Schwinn bicycles!

I love them! I even wrote a book about them. I dream about them. It's ridiculous! Barry


Here's a couple of Schwinn's I bought to put in the book because of the head badges on them.
