Need help trying to ID an old bike using the serial number.
I picked up a bike today. Pretty rough shape, but it was cheap and it should make a fun project and it's fun to ride. The guy says his 76yr old cousin got it when he was a kid. If that's indeed the case, I'm guessing it's from the 50s. He also said it was a Schwinn. It has a Huffy seat. Probably after market since it doesn't look original, but I don't know. The seat is obviously very old too.
Anyway, the serial number is J91756. Is there any way to use that to figure out the make/model of the bike?
Well, it fits the schwinn pattern. 1953, I think. Look here.
