    I would think not. I've never seen head lugs like that on a Schwinn.

    If it is, it looks more like an Giant made frame for the lower end models. Amazing how often you see out of focus camera phone shots lately. They want our money, but won't even take 10 seconds to retake a picture.
    The above comment is entirely my delusional ramblings, and not those of my family, friends, past and future employers, the Academy of Motion Pictures, or any of my other personalities.

    I don't believe it's a Schwinn. The head lugs, the seat stay treatment at the seat cluster, and the double eyelets on the rear dropouts all whisper "I'm not a Schwinn."

    Looks a bit like an old Ross Frame I have sitting around, but not quite that either.

    Definitely not a Schwinn. Cheap, early-'70's "bike boom" lugged frame. Overpriced at $15.
