So im thinking about picking up this schwinn traveler. Does anyone happen to know a year on this.
the guy wants 40 bucks for it.
I was wanting the headlight so I could put it on my schwinn suburban. The frame might be a little to small for me.

That looks like early 60s to me. Google for 'Schwinn serial numbers' and you will find the exact day that it was made.

looks very comparable to my '64, does it have the internal 3speed hub? also what is the serial probaly down by the drop out.

Decals look like 70s to me. But just check the serial number.

I think it's worth forty if you like it and it fits & shifts, rides well etc.
these guys know their stuff !
Too much to ask by showing the photo.. on the left side no less.
SERIAL # needed for sure.
It could be a 1962 -4 to ??
im not to sure if it will fit to be honest.
im interested in the light to hook up to my suburban. and im sure i could fix it up and send it to a good home.

if you're over 5'3" it'll suit ; 5'6" -8" just right; 5'9" -6' small but OK; 6'1" or taller dinky
Seriously, it's an OK bike; more reasonable than a "comparable" 10 sp. of that era. IMO

Yeah, I love riding my '73 Varsity. It's da bomb.

I had a Breeze that rode pretty darn well. Wish it were bigger.
