Can You Identify This Bike?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Can You Identify This Bike?

Hey guys, just wondering if anyone knew what kind of bike this is? I was really more interested in the year than anything else. All I know is that it's a Schwinn.

Try reposting it in the Classic and Vintage section. Someone there is bound to recognize it.

My guess as well. Early to mid 70's with a not-so-original saddle.

Get the serial number off the bottom bracket and post that and a picture in Classic and Vintage and you will receive a plethora of info.

Hey thanks for the replies guys. I reposted in Vintage and the guys over there helped me nail it down pretty good. It's a Schwinn Suburban, between 1970-1973 model.
