I just added this 1984 Cruiser 5 to my collection. This was the last year they were made in the good-ole USA!

Randall,
   I just picked up a 1984 Cruiser 5 frame, 0834 head badge date code - BVxxxxxx frame serial number. I'm ging to build it back as close as I can to what it was in 1984.
   If you still have your Cruiser 5 I'd appreciate a picture of the gear shifter on the handlebar or gooseneck if you could.
   As I understand these '84 Cruisers were built by Murray Ohio in their Larenceville TN plant. Do you have any other history on these bikes?
   Thanks

I have a 1984 Schwinn in the process of a rebuild.  I'd be interested in photos of the underside of the bb and the inside of the bb shell.

Some photos of the bike I have:

Rick, Is your bike a 1984 Cruiser 5?.  If so, I have the 84 I mensioned above and I have an 86 Tiawan Cruiser 5, both are apart. I could send a few pics if these are tee models in which you are interested.

I'm looking for bb photos of the Murray built Schwinns, any model.

My cruiser 5 is a Giant built 1986.

I had a 1983 Cruiser 1 speed but sold that a couple  years ago. Too rusty for me and not one I'd want to repaint.

I have 1 Murray made Schwinn.  Converting it to a 24" bmx cruiser.
