    Hiya from Massachusetts on my Schwinn ???

    Just bought a bike yesterday at a charity auction. I've been meaning to get one for a while now and this just seemed like the right time to do it!

    I'm not real sure about the bike. It's a Schwinn Traveller. It's blue with a little bit of silver at the end of the fork. I'm not sure if the handle bars are original (I think they are called mustache shaped?). It has a label on the tube just below the seat that says made in Japan for Schwinn in Chicago or something like that. All the parts I can read the markings on seem to say Schwinn. I think the rear gear changer says Le Tour GT420" or something close to that. I've read where some Schwinn bike's have markings that help tell what year they are but, I didn't find any like described.

    It has 27 x 1 1/4" tires and seems quite tall! I am 6' 3" and I have to lean and stand on my toes to get on the seat while standing still.

    Hope to be riding and finding out about my new bike soon!

    cheers!

    Welcome to Bike Forums. If you post a picture of your bike on the Vintage and Classic thread, they should be able to identify it for you.

    Hello cbsarge, you will want to look at the headbadge. It should have four digits on it. That will tell you the year your bike was made.

    Photos are mandatory when posting in the Classic & Vintage section, or we won't talk to you (just joking! We are always happy to help ).

    Welcome to BF!
