| I need help with Serial number I.D.|
Schwinn Mens Hornet? #A14105
Schwinn Girls Hornet? #C9596
| I'm new on vintage Bikes.|
I just Recived a bike from a friend The make is schwinn it has studed ballons tires
it has goose neck stem
Serial N# VR789022 on the front
A chain guard that says schwinn Cruiser
the Front schwinn enblem says chicago on the side.
this is my question is it a comun bike or is it worth restoring it.
| I have an early 1960's model JC Penney Foremost bike that was my mom's. I have decided to fix it back to original, or as close as possible. I was wondering if there were any sites or stores that I'd be able to get parts for this bicycle from? Any help would be greatly appreciated.|
| can anyone give me an approx year on the elgin pictured below? |
its a skiptooth and doesn't look as if it ever had a tank attached.
| IMO, 1936 ±2. |
I looked at some pics on nostalgic.net... seems like that's about as late as they used that chainwheel. Take a look:
There's a few in their list with the balloon tires and recurved fenders from that era. But some of them are only dated as "1930s" so that's a start.
| thanks ken.|
I just found this picture over there today:
so I'd agree with the 1936. I've got a bit of work to do...
| Just purchased a RED and WHITE Vintage THUNDERJET Bike.|
Looking to see if it is worth restoring.
I bought it as I have never seen one before and the front tag reads THUNDERJET AMERICAN MADE.
It has a brown SADDLE TYPE Seat with springs that says SCHWINN. NOT RIPS OR TEARS. WHITE GRIPS AND RIMS.
HAS A CHRME LIGHT MOUNTED ON THE FRONT RED FENDER. Fenders have Dual white pin stripes. The tank has a real cool ART DECO THNDERJET LOGO painted on it with a small UFO painted below it.. BIKE LOOKS COOL..
TIres say Super Deluxe in black raised rubber lettering
Chain guard reads SUPER DELUXE in White..
Any info would be greatly appreciated..
