The style and location of the # indicates !970 thru 1982 production. It's not listed on the angelfire.com chart that I use, but I would guess Jan. or Sept. of 74 due to the last letter being K. Not a positive I.D., sorry, but definitely a Schwinn, and probably a Stingray.Any help on this serial number would be great. JAK11065. I tried the decoder and searched on line lists and I'm still unsuccessful. The "JAK" is confusing me and I'm still learning . I picked the bike up really cheap at a pawn shop thinking it was probably a repop or fake. Either way, just curious what I actually have. Thanks. View attachment 19685 View attachment 19684
A 1958 serial number would be on the left rear axle drop-out. Serial numbers on the head tube would indicate 1970s or 80s. A picture would help. There have been plastic badges on some Schwinns from the 1970s and possibly later.Hello My name is Miguel, I am so confused & need some help on identifying the year and model of the bike. I even wonder if it’s a Schwinn or not. I just recently got a bike for my daughter bike, the Serial # is DU526443, it’s located on the right front tube. On a site I found it states it’s a Schwinn from 05/01 1958, is that correct? If so what model would that be? It looks like a Fairlady or Silk Chic, but I don’t know how to tell if it’s what it is. Could someone shed some light on how to determine that? Measurements, etc? The Schwinn name badge appears to be plastic, which makes me doubtful. Any help or insight is greatly appreciated, thank you and God bless.
