Cruiser 5 info
« on: May 25, 2018, 11:27:48 AM »
I have a Schwinn Cruiser 5 with the serial number on the rear dropout.  I assume this is a Taiwan Schwinn and the serial # is Y6900100.  Was curious as to the year?

Pictures of the bike would probably help best. That serial number does not mean much to me at least.

Chicago Schwinns 1965-1979? have serial numbers beginning in two letters that help narrow down frame build month and year.
2021 Kona Woo
2015 Surly Karate Monkey
2006 Bianchi Pista
2001 Surly 1x1
1989 Bianchi Campione d' Italia
1985 Trek 720
1980 Cook Brothers 3-bar

It's a mid to late 80's cruiser made by Giant. The little white sticker on the drive side drop out should have the year it was made on it.......

Brand new to this forum.
I have this same bike, (though not as in nice of shape) serial number Y6201157.
It does have a "Giant" sticker on the right drop out, but everything but the word "Giant" is unreadable. There is no front headbadge either. Sooo...I guess mid 80's is as close as I'm going to get to a date.
Thanks Ammoyankee for the question and Randall for the answer.

I have the same bike in the same color.....serial # Y7  and head badge confirms it's an 87

Duh    I just realized this thread is 4 year old.
