I'm usually pretty good at finding stuff on the net, but these 1980's Schwinn Madison Decals have been difficult to find, Velo cals doesn't carry any and there's nothing on e-bay. I found an 80's Schwinn Madison that had been powder coated thus loosing it's decals and head badge. Determining the year has been a bit difficult so I figure any of the 80's Madison decals would be okay. Something like this
We need pics of the Madison. If I recall correctly, the Madison was produced only for about three years in the mid 80's.
The powder coat appears to be very heavy. I checked the bottom bracket for a serial number but there's nothing. The paint might have covered it or I am not sure if these had a number stamped there. The sugino bottom bracket, sealed head set and lugs match those stock on a madison as well as the size of the frame. The seat post bolt, seat post, stem, bars, wheels and crank are not original to the bike. It came with a 70's 170mm campagnolo strada crank when I got it, but it would hit the seat stay so I removed it. It currently has a cheap single speed crank I had laying around and a Brooks sprinter saddle
