I just picked up an old Rollfast in poor to bad shape.I was hopeing for some help to decide if i should do a complete restoration or just fix it up enough to ride it.No pics yet but its red and from what i have been able to find on this and some other sites it might be pre-war.It has a skip-tooth chain and coaster brake.frame #is 25386 and the crank# is A 1 12 with a star on the sproket.I know its not much info but any help would be great.

My father bought an old Schwinn for me at a resale in the early 70's. It was OLD then, but I have no idea where to look for a serial #. The bike & seat have the Schwinn logo. It is a girls bike with what I guess are balloon tires and what look like newspaper baskets on both sides. It is rusted, is this too far gone to save? If not, how can I find out the style/model/year?

Never too far gone to save. May never be valuable but easy to make rideable. Try to find the tire size on the tires. 26x2.125 is balloon; x1.75 or x1 3/4 (different sizes!) is middleweight.
Your serial number is very likely on the left rear dropout, where the wheel bolts to the frame. The left side is your left as you sit on the bike. Other
possible locations are under the bottom bracket (pre 1953) and below and to the left of the badge in front as you face the bike (post 1972). Compare the number with the list on this site under Resources.
If it's from the early 60s you'll be able to look at catalog pages at the Schwinn Lightweight Data Book site
http://www.geocities.com/sldatabook/cover.html
to get a better idea of the model.
Take some pictures. Somebody will be able to help.

I picked this bike up at a flea market. I was thinking of selling it but want to know what kind it is and if it is worth something?? It has the name Commodore on the tank and on the chain cover,but looks as though bike has been repainted. I can not find a serial number anywhere.
