    Unusual Super Sport serial number

    I have a Schwinn Super Sport that from what I can deduce is either a 68 or 69. Why, because the color(campus green), chrome fork, shift levers on top, and no suicide levers point to those two years. Yet, the serial number on the left hanger is clearly five digits long(H8059) and this does not correspond to any date books, catalogs that I've run across. Is this just some kind of mistake? Any help would be welcomed

    The pre-1970 SS serial numbers were similar to Paramounts. Yours translates to the 59th frame built in August 1968. It is normal for pre-1970 SSs. Roger
