    Schwinn Speedster what year?

    Schwinn Speedster what year?

    Schwinn Speedster what year?

    Thanks for the suggestion Rusty Gold! I took the rear wheel off and check the inside of the right drop out. No markings there either. I'm still stumped on why I can not find a serial number, but still want to date check everything on it I can. What would a 70 Sturmey Archer hub have as a date code?

    Schwinn Speedster what year?

    Schwinn Speedster what year?

    I just picked up this Speedster, but can't find a serial number on the head tube or the left rear drop out. Is there any other place it could be? It's blue, has a camelback frame ans 26" S5 wheel. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Schwinn camelback frame differences (varsity/collegiate vs. speedster/racer)

    Is it safe to assume that the frame that can take 27" rims is a middle weight frame and the one that uses 26" rims is a light weigh frame?

    Schwinn 24" Camelback frame and fork

    Does anyone have a 24" camelback frame and fork? I have some stuff I could trade, or could buy outright. Campus Green or Sky Blue would be my first choices for color, but any would be considered. Thanks.
