I am trying to figure out just how old my 10-speed Schwinn LeTour III is. The S/N on the left rear dropout is 8E03379, and it says it was "Made in Japan for Schwinn Bicycle company, Chicago" (or words to that effect). I got it in 83 or 84 from someone else, so have no receipt or paperwork for it. I have checked all the websites I can find which discuss the serial numbers of Schwinn bikes, and they only list the ones which were made in the Chicago plant; none seem to mention the ones made by Panasonic in Japan, which apparently this one was. -- Dave Kerber Fight spam: remove the ns_ from the return address before replying!
