I need help, I bought a cruiser at garage sale, I think it's a 80s schwinn?

Need help in identifying my bike?

Yeah, you need to post more than a few good side view pics, a few shots of the headset, (where the top and lower tube attach to the headset tube) and also supply a serial number, its either under the badge or on one of the rear drops, maybe even on the bottom of the BB shell. Should be easy to find either way.

I think it's the infamous polar bear in a snowstorm cruiser.
