ID this Schwinn World Tourist please
I just bought a mint mint condition woman's Schwinn WOrld Tourist for my daughter at a thrift store....$39.99. Frame says made in Taiwan for Schwinn of Chicago. Has a Shimano Lark II rear der, and crank says Adamas OX, side pull brakes, Schwinn generator for front and rear lights (still works), fenders, 10 speeds with "toggle" type of shifters near the grips. I found a number (serial?) stamped near the rear axle on the frame..G0483. Has original tires in excellent condition and very cool "burnt orange" paint with hand painted yellow outlines around the fork crown, where the tubes connect, etc. She loves it as it rides well with a classy look.
Anyone know when this bike was made? Thanks to all!
