SOURCE: How do I operate 10 speed road bike?

the gear lever on the left controls the front derailleur which will have two different size sprockets...when you first start to ride you want it on the smaller of the two. The gear lever on the right controls the back or rear derailleur with a gear cluster of five small to increasing larger sprockets...when first starting to ride you want that on the largest one .....five in the rear and two in the front (5x2=10 variable speeds to chose from). as you increase speed slowly lift up (because this lever will be located down) on the right shifter to help maintain an even speed to help you go faster..when your on the smallest gear in the back and want to go even faster then pull down on the left shifter to go to the larger sprocket you are now in ten gear.When coming to a stop reverse the shift levers and repeat...if the chain rides off the sprockets when shifting especially in the front derailleur it means the shift guide is bent to far to one side or you derailleur needs adjusting same goes for the rear..there are two little screws stops with springs that you use to make these fine adjustments. My family owned a Schwinn shop, i was a mechanic for a good 12 years and i havent heard the name La tour in a long time i owned one myself and have a traveler still today. Tip..keep chain lubed, WD-40 will work fine, and also lube the gear cables with a light grease...also dont rotate the handle bars up for easier comfort because in an emergency stop situation all your weight will transfer to the brake levers and you fly forward over the handle bars.

SOURCE: I found two Schwinn bikes

The Le Tour serial number does not appear to be correct. Please check it as it is probably a AH beginning instead of 4H. If AH it is a 1972 (January). Nice bike with 3 piece cranks. Heavy, but not normally worth much. Expect a value under $200 if in really great shape. The Sports Tourer is definitely from 1972 (December). Also not worth a bunch. Also 3 piece cranks. Heavy steel Frame and fork. Remember that old man Schwinn wanted to keep his business proprietary, so his 27" tires and tubes from that era are a different size then everyone else. Finding "Schwinn Size" tires might be a little tricky and your normal Ace or Walmart may not have them. Also, buying too cheap of tires is not a great idea as often they won't bead well and you ride with humps. Tires alone could set you back over $100.00. Good tune-ups and cleanings could hit you for several hundreds more. If you don't want to put more then they are worth into them I would take off the cranks & seats and sell them on ebay and the rest to the scrap yard. IMO

I wouldn't hold my breath waiting.

What exactly are you needing instructions for? Most bikes are just static frames with a bunch of aftermarket (Shimano, for example) stuff hung on them.

For unique parts use a search engine. There MAY be something out there.

http://www.schwinnbikes.com/support/owners-manuals

Except for proprietary frames or technologies, everything on a common bike is found on just about any other brand of bike and the individual components are usually documented at the individual manufacturers' websites.

Places like http://www.parktool.com/blog/repair-help document many of the repair and adjustment procedures.

Google will find tons of How-to videos for assembly and adjustment.

I have a schwinn serial number dp509984. I would like to known what year make and model it is as well as a price range if at all poossible. Thanks for ur help


It would help if you had at least provided the type of bike (old coaster brake, 3 speed, 10 speed, etc.) The make is Schwinn, the model is written right on the bike frame or chainguard. If the bike is repainted so that the model is not visible it's not worth much. As far as year, just Google "Schwinn serial number" (and note info about date codes) and see my tip for more info: How to determine the year value etc of your bicycle

    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
