Won't get up and go anymore...

Why does my 1952 Schwinn Continental "Paperboy" bike refuse to go out for a ride at 4:00 AM these days. Could it be getting old like me? I want to ride but can't seem to get "anything" to stand up and go anymore. My wife died two years ago. Now the old Schwinn is the only thing left to ride.

The grease inside your wheel bearings is what you might want to look at first.You probably need to change your wheel bearings or wash the existing wheel bearings with degreaser then regrease them.Check your chain links too they might need a squirt from your WD40 can,Make sure the links move freely.

What year was this bike made Schwinn Continental 10 speed serial# JK562864


Look for an alphanumeric on the head tube or head badge (where the fork goes through frame) and then Google "Schwinn date codes". It might be worth $200 or more if in prime condition and pre-70's, or much less.

Where can I find an owner's manaul and parts list for a 1973 schwinn suburban


http://www.ebay.com/itm/1972-Schwinn-Owners-Manual-Continental-Suburban-Collegiate-Varsity-Sport-/160832409973

The moving parts on that vintage Schwinn are essentially the same for all of the listed bikes. I expect just about all are currently replaceable with new parts on an item by item basis if that is your need.

Bike to high


If the big is really too big, then it's not safe to ride, and blocks on the pedals are not a good idea. On the other hand, if you can straddle the frame of the bike with your feet nearly flat on the ground, then the bike is not too big. You can lower the seat, and many seats can also be adjusted forward and back an inch or two. The optimum seat height is when you put one pedal all of the way down, with the heel of your foot on the pedal, then you should be able to lift your weight off of the seat. You can also bring the handlebars closer if the handlebar stem you have has a typical length offset (if you picture the handle bar stem as an inverted hockey stick, the the offset is the length of the hockey stick blade) - if so, you can replace it with a stem with a smaller offset. If the stem already has a very small offset, you can turn it backwards, but don't do this if the offset is more than 1 inch.
Good luck.

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
