    need year of schwinn traveler

    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.
    I have spoken.

    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 ??

    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

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