| Recently purchased a bike identified as a 1972 Apple krate with the serial number JAK0925. Listed it for sale and was contacted by a potential buyer who wanted to tell me it was NOT a 1972...instead it was a 1998-99 reproduction of an apple crate. The same individual told me if it were a 1972, the serial number would be located under the headplate. When I checked, that is precisely where it is located. When I tried to date the bike on various dating sites, the beginning suffix JAK is not recognized. If the number were AK, this would be a 1974 Apple Krate. Does the letter J represent reproduction and AK being 1974, is this a reproduction of a 1974 Apple Krate? Or is the J an ignored letter and this IS a 1974 Apple Krate based on the AK... would appreciate someones input on this|
| JAK is not a 1974 krate. There is only 2 letters needed to ID a schwinn. If Id-ing a 1974 look on the left rear side where the rim bolts on.|
| Definitely a reproduction model.|
JAK converts to September of 1998.
There may also be a 4 digit code stamped into the
headbadge and a caution decal on the top straddle bar.
Is yours a single speed?
I believe only the Grey Ghost was reproduced in a
5 speed version.
| d=mounth e =year or d= april e=1969 all schwinns produced since 1965 are date code as follows mounth the first letter starting with a for jan,or a= jan,b=feb,c=march same goes for years the second letter 1965=a,1966=b,1967=c,1968=d,1969=e,1970=f the letters i an o are skipped due to the fact they resemble,and could be mistaken for numbers yours is ( j=1975)and(a=jan) hope this helps Don|
