Does anyone know how to date a Sears bicycle? I found 2 pics. of the same frame style but with different seats. One says it's from the 50's and the other from the 60's. Can you get approximate dates from the reflectors? (SAE62) Thank You, Mark

Look under the bottom bracket or on the rear dropouts for a serial number. Please post a photo.

I was given a old Ross trying to find out the year it was made serial # is 5413514 it is a 24" ballon bike has a red white and blue metal symbol in the front, metal spring on front fork, this bike has a very large chain guard. I hand blasted the frame(it was repainted metalic purple) from what I can tell the fork where white the frame was black and the chain guard was red The tires which I think are vintage where made in Penn. and have a print of a chief on the side walls

BALLOON:   Schwinn Wasp #D08316 covered in old Red Porch Paint posted by: Doug Edwards on 8/24/2006 at 2:35:52 AM
I just picked up 4 Bikes for 100 bucks. One is a Schwinn Wasp that has been covered in whats look like old brick red Porch Paint, Kind of peels off. I am trying to tell the year but am somewhat confused with the serial number matching up to the charts I have found. Serial Number# D08316. Does anybody know the exact year of this bike. Is there a trick to getting the latex paint off. The original color looks to be blue. I will get some Pics up this Weekend.

Your Schwinn Wasp is from April 1960. As far as taking the frame down to the OG without ruining it is a time-consuming process in itself; you can try degreaser diluted with water as I am with my '70 that someone drowned the original green with silver, but remember: It's a process. Good luck!
