Help Identifying Frame 2/2
3 Attachment(s)

The second frame is a schwinn. It has a more relaxed geometry than the german frame and a lower bottom bracket. The forks are pretty thick and have cantilever brake bosses. The guy who sold them said he usually did not see them on schwinns. Somebody, seemingly started a restoration on it and gave up midway. I could not locate a serial number anywhere on the frame. Maybe the primer is covering it?

I'm guessing a 90's Schwinn Cross-Fit. Hybrid type bike. These are nice bikes that can be built for touring or commuting.

The headset is messed up on that frame.

The serial number is probably on the underside of the bottom bracket, but it could also be on one of the dropouts. There should also be a 4-digit date code stamp on the headbadge. Both of those numbers will help greatly to ID the frame.

A Schwinn MTB? Note same rear brake bridge, no down tube braze ons for shifters, and the black headset. Only lacking a set of bottle brazens on seat tube to match up with the Impact Pro. Long top tube too.

Again, I wouldn't waste the time or money. You would be FAR better off finding a whole bike. I have at least ten boxes full of parts and I wouldn't attempt to build up even a mediocre frame from scratch. High end stuff with high demand, maybe but these are not it.

Thank you everyone for you inputs. I am going to go with the impact MTB. I looked further on the Impact pro and the fork and frame look exactly the same. I also saw that most of the owners had loved it and regretted selling it. Guess its a good place to start a nice commuter/tourer.
