    The rear wheel is not original, however the front wheel is. That original front wheel has a Weinmann rim with a hooked bead, which was relatively new at the time. The front hub inscription should...

    Brevete S.G.D.G. is French for "Patented Sans Garantie Du Gouvernement", which means Patented without government guarantee. Both the Schwinn Approved and Christophe branded toe clips were made by AFA...

    The factory spec. books aren't always 100% correct, but they do list Christophe medium size clips (Schwinn p/n 47 000) and Lapize straps (47 005) for the Paramounts in '72:...

    No drive-side pic but from what I can see it appears all original except for the saddle and missing toe straps. It is the smallest 21" size.

    It actually was. An official Schwinn dealer News Flash bulletin dated 11/15/72 states:

    I believe those specific Schwinn Approved clips and Lapize straps would have originally come on a '69 through '71 Super Sport or Sports Tourer. Clips earlier than that were stamped "Sprint" and from...

    The first one is a '72/73 model and is worth about $50. It is also considered a "ladies'" bike with a step-through frame. The second one is a much newer ('80s) and a better bike overall, however I...

    That is exactly why I want to know both the frame and badge numbers. I believe there was a distinct change-over from the 2-piece to 1-piece cable guides in EF frame production, however from what I've...

    K808 would mean the frame was the 8th one built in Oct. '68. Kool Orange was one of the colors available that year. I'd love to see some pics! Here is the catalog page:

    That is more than possible, in fact it was standard procedure for Schwinn in the '60s and '70s. They would stockpile parts (including frames) needed to build various model runs in advance, then build...

    Thanks! The LMxxxxxx serial indicates the frame was built in Nov. '76 however the 0697 badge no. indicates the bike was built on Thursday March 10, 1977. Since that is a '77 Varsity there would be no...

    Thanks! That means the changeover happened in May or earlier frame production. The 1386 number means the bike was built on Monday May 17, 1976. If anybody else has a '76 EF 10-speed model I'd be...

    repechage is correct, they were resistance welded and not brazed. At least they were from 1966 forward as I just checked several EF frames with that being the earliest. If anybody can find an EF...
