Raleigh Prestige, GT ZR.1, Burley Duet, Schwinn Voyagre, Giant ATX 990, a couple single speeds and a fixed gear, plus my bike collection
The 4 digit number tells you when the bike was made. The first three are the day (178th day=June 27th). The last digit reprsents the year. Either 1985 or 1995 and since I don't believe they made a Starlet in '95, it would be 1985. Hope this helps.
cannondale alpine series(mt), cannondale r6oo, sekine (rd), schwinn varsity, schwinn suburban, western flyer nerdbike, rickshaw from yogyakarta(sp?), ripped up baby trailers to use as a truck, and some other stuff too
i'm sure most of you know this, but www.oldschwinn.com has a pretty easy system to date almost any schwinn. that's how i figured out my suburban and varsity were both older than me.
