I don't remember hearing about any important numbers being under the pedals. Pedals are detachable, so you wouldn't put an important number there. The bike serial number is usually stamped on the round tube that houses the pedal mechanism, the central plate that a kick stand is attached to or at the back and usually on the left hand side. Honestly there's million's of barely used bikes out there ( we in the USA are notorious for buying bikes and then not using them) and I doubt you've got one worth more than 25$. If it's been in the shed, then the tires and tubes are probably flat and dry rotted. It'll cost about $40 to replace the tires and tubes, so keep that in mind. Now if you've got a "Stingray" or something with a banana seat, you could get around 200$ for it. Remember a bike is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Oh yeah, if you still think you've got something special, go to EBay and see what something similar to it has sold for.

SOURCE: schwinn 201 recumbent bike makes clicking noise

Check the tightness of the crank bearings, also the crank fastening nuts (on axle) If its the gears you may have to turn the screws on the rear derailleur to adjust the tracking. The same as the front. Your question is kind of vague so its hard to pinpoint the clicking noise. Could even be a stone in the tire??lol

SOURCE: My pedals are squeaking while pedaling on my


i cannot see any problems with wd40 on any bike and have used it myself for many years.
just wipe away any excess, and do not spray it on the pedal tops (where your shoes go) as they may get slippery.

light oil (3in1 or simillar) is also excellent on bikes instead of wd40. same advice as above.

i find wd40 works faster, especially on squeaks, but oil works for longer.
i usually use wd40 first to cure the imediate noise, and then use a few drops of the oil to keep it quiet for longer.

hope this helps

I found two Schwinn bikes in my mom's garage after she had passed away. One was a Schwinn Le tour (light blue) serial # 4H1152 the second was a Schwinn Sports tourer (green) serial # MH623652. Both are not...

That is a good find!-- I always favor the Schwinn line-- My Dad used to sell them in Warsaw, New York years ago!
You ask good questions-- and maybe I can give you some thoughts--
Likely you will need new tires and tubes all the way around--
You local hardware (maybe even Wallmart?) - or for sure your local bike shop will have them--
Be sure to take the exact size numbers with you-- for there are MANY SIZES in tires these days!

Now-- What are you planning on doing with the bicycles?
The old Schwinn's were Strong, Sturdy AND HEAVY (by today's standards..)
(I used to Pedal papers for years with my Schwinn Corvette!!)
Most bicycle riding enthusiasts these days want lighter bikes-- and thinner tires!--
Great for the long run-- Are you going to use the Bikes yourself, or were you thinking of selling them? -- They probably mean more to you (and are probably worth more to you-- if they were old Family Heirlooms' )

So-- Any family history associated with them?

Let us know if we can help you more
