I have an older bike and I just want a bit of information on it. Can anyone help me?
It was purchased in california
It's blue and it has "univega" printed on it.
It has a head lamp w/generator. Origninal, I think because the bike has a sticker on it that says "light".
Five-speed internal hub.
Really skinny tires.
I'm just curious about it. All I know right now is that it's fun to ride!! Thanks for your help in advance.

I need help I just got a Schwinn Traveler bike. The serial number is D240426 is this 1962?. Its a 3 speed starkey with chrome front and back fenders. I think its in good shape. If I want to sell it what should I ask?

   RE:MISC:   Schwinn Traveler posted by Oscar on 7/22/2001 at 6:13:03 PM
It's a paradox. Schwinn lightweights are the most useful of all vintage Schwinn bikes, but they are not really collectable. Unlike Sting-Rays, you can ride it without slamming your chin with your knee. Unlike ballooners, you can ride it without getting a hernia.

As it's old and different (opposed the the ubiquitous Breezes, Racers and Speedsters) it should be a little better than a garage sale bike. If the paint and chrome are clean, you can ask $100 with a straight face. If you can actually get a benji for it, you're good salesperson.

A friend is looking for chrome fenders for that model, by the way, if anyone has some. (Don't part yours out, though, Janice.)

   RE:MISC:   Schwinn Traveler posted by Oscar on 7/22/2001 at 6:14:59 PM
Yes, by the way, 1962 is correct. The cool thing about that bike is that the front fender is pinched into a fin. Ya don't see that every day.

   RE:RE:MISC:   Schwinn Traveler posted by Chris on 7/24/2001 at 7:55:32 AM
Aren't those fenders stainless steel, instead of chrome-plated? At least they were on a 64 lasdies Traveler that I bought last year.

   RE:RE:RE:MISC:   Schwinn Traveler posted by JOEL on 7/24/2001 at 9:04:32 AM
I have a 54 with the pointy stainless front fender (no fin). Cool looking bike.

WANTED:   parts for 64 Scwinn Fleet posted by: craig on 7/17/2001 at 3:44:07 PM
I own a 64 Scwinn Fleet and I am currently restoring it, but it is missing the tank, chainguard and chrome rack for the back. If anyone has or knows someone who has any of these for sale please let me know.

   RE:WANTED:   parts for 64 Scwinn Fleet posted by Gordon on 7/18/2001 at 10:35:51 AM
I believe I have the tank and chainguard. I'll check in the warehouse tonight and let you know.

   RE:RE:WANTED:   parts for 64 Scwinn Fleet posted by Gordon on 7/18/2001 at 6:10:20 PM
Okay, I've been to the warehouse and found the tank and guard. The guard has a shallow groove in it from being rubbed by a bent crank, and the silk screening is almost gone but you can still make out Schwinn and Fleet. The tank seems solid. It has a couple rust spots but appears very restorable.

   RE:RE:RE:WANTED:   parts for 64 Scwinn Fleet posted by craig on 7/19/2001 at 10:56:39 AM
I am so excited to hear that you have the tank and chainguard for my bike. I would very much like to purchase them from you. Please email me with prices and such.
Thanks Craig
