Schwinn catalogs website gone?

There is the trfindley site, and the waterford site that just links to trfindley is still working as well.
But there used to be another catalogs site which listed mid-late 80s catalogs.

Anyone know what its called? Not sure how google just dropped the site...maybe its actually gone? Thats rare these days.

You could search via catalog year or by model.

I don't know about the other site but as long as trfindley is working, I'm good.

The schwinn cruisers site is great for older decades, but no thats not the one that seems to have vanished.

The vanished one had catalogs thru '93 or so abd was teally well cataloged by year and model.

I don't know, but if this site ( Schwinn Catalog Scans ) isn't bookmarked or starred or whatever, well, you're missing out! To say it is and has been helpful is a monumental understatement. Really thankful for the people that scanned everything and host it.

Is that the one that you could organize by model? So you could see every year of the Voyageur or whatever?

This is the one that recently disappeared: https://bikecatalogs.org/SCHWINN/

That is too bad because it was very well organized, you could list by year as well as model.

Have you tried the wayback machine? You might be able to get some impressions.

Sorry, I hadn't thought about the site for years until the other day and realized the machine it used to be on was no more. It is back up now.

Wow, thank you so much! That is an excellent resource that I had thought was gone forever. Glad to see it back online.

Well that's about the best zombie thread resurrection ever. You rock!
