Re: Schwinn Serial Number Info

You should be asking in name it. But its a 1987 Freeform Pro.


Still searching for my missing bikes from BITD. 1979 Blue Max serial: CI9 221346 and 1977 Webco serial: 42667. Both were last seen at Spoke and Sport Bicycles in Spokane, WA around 1984. $600 reward if found!!

Re: Schwinn Serial Number Info

Yeah, that's totally incorrect. Bikes in that style didn't even exist in 1980 lol Decoding a serial isn't just about looking up the number, it's also about using some common sense in looking at what the frame is first, knowing what era it's from, THEN decoding the serial. Also, FYI to fuzzy68, they never made that style frame in Chicago to begin with.

Scraplord is correct.  I typed in the wrong name but gave you the right link and didn't bother to correct it.  I need to become a Pro Member again so I can edit.

And looks like your rear dropouts have been shortened a bit.

G= made by Giant. Shoukld not be a "c" should be a number. Maybe a half stamped 0.
Made in 06 of 1981.

Re: Schwinn Serial Number Info

Bought a Schwinn Gremlin from a member here.  Trying to find out what year it is.  I don't have the bike in my possession yet but the numbers that were given to me are yn014654.  It's on the bb underneath.  I'm assuming that's a serial number not a date stamp.  Where are the date stamps located on the Gremlins?

Re: Schwinn Serial Number Info

I have a Schwinn 24" Predator, serial number looks like 3605090, but most of the zeros look half stamped. I was not sure if the zoeros were 'c's or not.

*edit* On the other rear drop out is the number G0483. Which looks to be Giant made, in April of '83. Cool, this was the same as my very first quality bike from when I was a kid.

Re: Schwinn Serial Number Info

I got one for you all, just got this frame today. I recognized the foot bar, and i am thinking a 1989 Predator Freeform. But here is whats confusing, it has a Schwinn badge that i am not seeing on any other bikes from that year. So, if anyone has a little or alot of info to share that would be great!
