   RE:WANTED:   Model info 55 Schwinn posted by Cal on 5/1/2001 at 5:41:08 AM

   RE:WANTED:   Model info 55 Schwinn posted by gary on 5/1/2001 at 8:36:50 PM
its a bare frame, was hoping to find out by serial number

   RE:RE:WANTED:   Model info 55 Schwinn posted by BillG on 5/2/2001 at 4:55:28 AM
Unfortunately, Schwinn serial numbers do not contain model or color information.

   RE:WANTED:   Model info 55 Schwinn posted by Gary on 5/3/2001 at 9:31:34 PM
well then i can make this into any 55 model year model produced? i dont want to cheat anyone, but i can get enough vintage schwinn stuff to make this nearly any model i want.

   RE:RE:WANTED:   Model info 55 Schwinn posted by Jim on 5/4/2001 at 4:08:13 AM
Well you can make it almost any model within a couple of ranges. Threespeed set ups did come on many models. However things like hand brakes were more common to other models. What style is the rear bracket on the frame. Is it a ribbon that would hold a brake? If so you could use it for a Jag or a Corvette.(I'm assuming the frame is a middleweight) If it is a plain fender mount you could build it as an American or another more basic style Schwinn.

   RE:RE:RE:WANTED:   Model info 55 Schwinn posted by sam on 5/4/2001 at 10:15:22 PM
also check the fork to see if it's drilled for a brake.The corvette's were drilled but the delux american(with the ribbon bracket also )was not drilled for a front brake because they used a clamp on brake in 55

   RE:WANTED:   Model info 55 Schwinn posted by Gary on 5/5/2001 at 12:08:12 PM
The Frame is set for a handbrake. its a ribbon. the fork is drilled for a brake.

   RE:WANTED:   Model info 55 Schwinn posted by Gary on 5/8/2001 at 6:52:10 PM
Now there are 2! i just got a twin to the first one, its a 56 model 3speed frame.

I need a Sturmey-Archer twist grip shifter for a Raleigh RSW-16, ca. 1969. Either a whole twist grip shifter or some of the internal parts, like the detent and the spring wire keeper.

Also, does anyone know what types of springs where enclosed in the original style back rack? They are both gone (or it is gone if there was just one). I'm not about to take apart my other RSW rack to see!
