I just got a vintage Schwinn FOR FREE! It needs some work but it's not bad at all. I've found that it looks to be a Schwinn Mesinger (ok sorry seat manufacturer) with added sadle baskets and the original colour seems to be blue. The tires are really bad but they say Schwinn on them so I'm thinking of keeping them. The handlebars also say Schwinn and we found what looks to be a serial number: DB12530. The frame and the wheels are 24" so I'm guessing it's a girls' bike. Aside from that, I'm not sure of anything. Can anyone guess a date from the following pictures? Any other information you can give is welcome as well =)
The worst of the rust and you can see the original blue paint.
