Welcome to the forum! I moved your post here to the Muscle Bikes board.

That manual is in excellent condition! It's fun to look at the Schwinn literature after all these years.

Here's the back side. The bike this book came with was mine as a kid and the bike is in my shed. The bike is well used but solid and all there. I put air in the tires last summer, playing cards in the spokes and my grandsons thought it was the koolest thing on the block.

Post some pics of your bike when you can. We'd love to see it.

It's cool that you still have it!

Thanks to all for the comments. I'm no bike collector, what do you think it's worth?

The paint doesn't look too bad and the color Coppertone is more desirable.
