I believe the 65 models were the last. The Heavy-Duti took it's place for the 66 model year.

GT is right 65 was the last year for Americans but 64 was the last year for the Deluxe Americans. 62 was the first year for the Deluxes. What info are you looking for?

Hear is mine but she dont have the tank no more.. I am in the midst of breaking her down and cleaning every thing and derusting. Retuning and finding all missing to bring her back to her former glory or near that.lol

Here's my 62. Albeit the whole thing was house painted, including; sanded, rough up of the stainless steel fenders 'custom' head badge 'custom' seat cover and dopy tape, pin striping. almost NOT an American deluxe now. .

Here I here is my '64, I also had a nice '63 . Sold it at Iron Ranch. The '63 has a front light and no front rack. One nice thing about these models is that the tanks are painted white, not the bike color like the Mark V . So a tank from a blue bike is interchangeable with red bike , if you have a nice bike without a tank. I love these Slimline Schwinns!

I have a Schwinn Delux American that I got for my birthday in 1962. I cant make out the entire serial number but the first letter is K and that doesnt match production numbers that I saw. According to production listing, this bike would have been built in the month of October but I got it in August. Therefore, I assumed it was built in 1961 for me to get it in August of 1962. I was very interested in your statement that the Delux American was first produced in 1962. Where can I get more information on my bike?

A K15XXXX serial could very well be on a bike made for the 1962 model year. SN date has nothing to do with the actual build date of a bike. Try to get the full serial number.

Most of the serial number must be worn off. Only the K and a 191 with missing numbers between. Would parts made for bikes during this 1962-1965 time frame be the same? I am missing the rear reflector and would like to keep it aithentic with replacement parts.
