New old Schwinn, 4130 Moly, front plate 1293 Chicago

What I want to know is where is the best place to get parts for this old Schwinn? How do I know the most appropriate substitute brand part is for it?

I am a newby and have been riding a friends Raleigh and this is my first road bike. I am now up to about 10 miles a day and looking forward to getting in shape for the Olympic Peninsula this coming June. Since I'm in Florida, this is going to take some effort.

Any help would be appreciated on or off the forum

My direct email is

P.S. If I understand past postings correctly, the 1293 means the bike was made the 129th day of the third year of 1980. Or 1990? How do you know which one?

you need to be able to tell what decade the bike came from. for instance if it has index shifting its from the '90's.....etc..
