Schwinn Travler Single speed
Hey everyone, just recently I bought a Schwinn Travler in which the shop i bought it from turned it into a single speed and was hoping I could get a few more details on it. I bought it for about 150 bucks from a bike shop, although there is a few pieces that I am either hoping to repair or replace. Unfortunately I know little to nothing about bikes, but decided to make this a project. Two numbers i were able to pull of it where the ones on the back of the frame. G1080 and 2947748, is it hard to come across original parts? Need to get new handle bars, brakes, and wheels, any help would be greatly appreciated thanks
which year? Post a picture, if you don't know. post one if you do.
Bike brands are a paint job on the frame , and parts which are very interchangeable

The old Schwinn Travelers were Japan or Taiwan built for Schwinn. The parts aren't unique to the bike- parts from other brands will interchange with little or no fuss. There are some "gotchas", though. Read some of the "sticky" posts at the top of the Bicycle Mechanics forum for some guidance.
