im still waiting on a response as to what year the bike is. the s/n is LY900002 and is a 5 speed Schwinn beach cruiser I picked up on ebay for $165 the bike is in good shape and the five speed controller is on the handlebar cant get them to upload on the computer but can on my phone if you want to give me a number ill send them that way

Can you tell me where on the bike is the serial number. Also do you see a 4 number digit on the company logo?

the bike is still in Arizona but he will let me know for sure in a couple of hours but he thinks its under the crank I can send photos through my phone

Unless you can't upload the picture somewhere i won't be able to see them. Also if you can let me know if the headbadge have a 4 digit number on it (or not) it would be useful.

Just from the look of it, you estimate it around what time?

he gets off work in about 2 hrs

"Just from the look of it, you estimate it around what time?"

I was talking about the bike :)

In any case i will try to be around in 2-3h.

im thinking 5 but he thinks the s/n is under the crank did the pictures not come through?

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

I don't know when Schwinn went to the handlebar shift and not down by the goose neck there is no four letter code on the front badge.the bike seems around an eighties but the Schwinn stickers look around the 70s

Nope, have not saw your picture.

The part that give me trouble is the "Y" Perhaps i could interpret the serial differently with pictures.

I just talked to him he said the number is XXXXX the crank and is the s/n I gave you.there are no numbers on the front badge.im thinking when did they change shifting to thumb on handlebar and not lever on gooseneck it might still show on ebay the item # XXXXX

This is a 1979 and it seem to be the last with the speed changer that way:
http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee35/wop1956/IMG_1851.jpg

The serial does not return me anything from this tool:
http://schwinncruisers.com/serial-number.html
And they mention covering up to 1982.

I don't think it is a 90 or 91.
It must be 80's. I have a hard time to find an exact match, all those that i look at have something a bit different in the lettering. Sorry that i can't be more accurate.

the bike turned out to be a mid nineties bike but thanks

That would explain why it was not registering in the database or in any of my model number chart. It also explain why the lettering was not corresponding to any known year i looked (including images from catalogs).

The company closed in 1992 and was bought by his current owner in 2001. Perhaps some models were manufactured in-between. In anycase, nice to see the mystery solved.
