MISC:   Need help identifying Girl's Western Flyer posted by: Darrell on 12/15/2003 at 5:10:10 AM
I've got another question, please. I also have a Girl's Western Flyer and am not sure how to identify it. I have found a set of #'s on the bottom of the frame near the crank...they are 2fc-2017. Does this mean anything? I've looked through the picture database and didn't see one that looked like it. Also, any idea on a value? It's in good shape.

Thanks again for any help.

Darrell

I have a few WF'er's, can only guess at their year's. It seems they began using a sticker instead of tin for a headbadge around 1970. The tin one's changed in style over the year's, each era had it's look. Is your's a balloon or MW? What's it worth? We want it to be more than what we paid for it. I have a nice early '60's girl's 26in. WF that I think is worth $60(US) on the right day on the left day's it's worth $30. Check ebay occasionally, maybe you'll see your model and track it's value.






MISC:   Need Help W/Schwinn Corvette Serial # posted by: Darrell on 12/15/2003 at 4:30:11 AM
I have a Schwinn Corvette, Serial #M913048 and would like to know what year it is and approximate value. It is in fair to good condition, all original, black. I checked the serial # information from this site and am not all that familiar with this stuff and I couldn't figure it out. I thought it might be a 1954...but I seem to have one too many numbers. Any help is certainly appreciated.

Thank you,

Darrell

The M9xxxx numbers are from the last week of September of 1954. Your number has one too many digits though. There should only be 5 digits after the M. Don't know what to make of that.

I sold these in the early 70's. What kind of info are you looking for? I still have dealer service manual.

Hey Charlie
I see where you replied on 12/20/03 but I can't figure out how to e-mail you back. You can e-mail me at the address above or leave me your address. I am looking for any info you have or can tell me where to get it from. I am 38 years old and remember when my grandparents bought this new. It has been hanging in a building for about the past 29 years and I have been trying to get it for about the past 15. It is in perfect condition. I have no desires to sell. Information if for my own knowledge. I have had many people ask me about it but I could not tell them anything more than I have told you. Would you be willing to part with the dealer service manual? I would pay of course. If not, could you maybe scan some manufacturer info? Do you know anywhere to get more info on this? I have been searching the web for about a year with no success until now. Thank you for your response. Anything would be greatly appreciated. Also, since you sold these, was this not a popular item? I have had the worst time looking for info.

MISC:   Need help with Serial Number posted by: Tammie on 12/10/2003 at 3:57:10 PM
I have a brown Schwinn World Tourist ladies 10 speed with the serial number G0XXX. This is a 5 digit serial number second digit being a zero located where the rear hub attaches to the bike. I have found no serial numbers smaller than 6 digits. Can someone help me please. I would like to know how to find the resource with this information and if you know the year, that would be great also. Thank you very much. Tammie


   RE:MISC:   Need help with Serial Number posted by Ken on 12/10/2003 at 6:55:55 PM
Tammie, where was it made? That model is not listed on the Schwinn Lightweight Data Book
http://www.geocities.com/sldatabook/models.html
between 1960 and 1979.

   RE:RE:MISC:   Need help with Serial Number posted by Tammie on 12/10/2003 at 7:01:06 PM
Well, it is metric, so I am guessing not in the United States. It has a Chicago badge also.

   RE:MISC:   Need help with Serial Number posted by Eric Amlie on 12/11/2003 at 1:38:22 PM
You left out the crucial info. What are the numbers where you put x's. I think the 0 and the first number are going to be the month, the last two will be the year. The G is for Giant who made the bike for Schwinn. Look closely at your headbadge also. You may find a small four digit number stamped into it. If it's there, the first three numbers will be the sequential day of the year and the last number will be the year. The decade is a guess but probably eighties.
