I have a 80s Schwinn what I think is a High Sierra

I have a 80s Schwinn what I think is a High Sierra not sure I tried to look up the serial # CR842778 and it said it was manufactured March 1980 but I looked at all the models nothing matched up to what I just restored I'm just wanting to know more about the bike. I love this ride because I'm 6'7 and its fits me like a glove Its 23" + and has all the #1 parts of its time. Here is a pic of how it looks after I finished it. Thanks Douglas

Pretty Sharp Doug.
I think your bike was made in 1990. The first clue is the headbadge. If its oval and white its a 1980 but black n red is 1990. High Sierra came out in 1988 and ended around 1998.

Schwinn bike serial number 3240/vintage.what is it worth

Value varies greatly depending on physical and mechanical condition, and the Traveler is not a terribly collectible bike. Also, that is not a valid serial number, but rather a date code, translating to the 324th day of 1980 as the date of manufacture.

    How do I determine the year my GE model TFX24R was made?

    Print How to Determine the Age or Manufacture Date of a GE Appliance

    The manufacturing date and year is coded into the serial number of the appliance. Our serial numbers begin with two letters. The first letter identifies the month and the second letter identifies the year. The corresponding letters, months, and years are below. For example, if the serial number begins with the letters "FJ," the appliance was made in March of 1952.

    Letter Month (first letter) Years (second letter) A January 2001, 1989, 1977, 1944 B -- 1945 C -- 1946 D February 2002, 1990, 1978, 1947 E -- 1969, 1948 F March 2003, 1991, 1979, 1949 G April 2004, 1992, 1980, 1950 H May 2005, 1993, 1981, 1951 J -- 1952 K -- 1953 L June 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970, 1954 M July 2007, 1995, 1983, 1971, 1955 N -- 1972, 1956 P -- 1973, 1957 R August 2008, 1996, 1984, 1958 S September 2009, 1997, 1985, 1959 T October 2010, 1998, 1986, 1974, 1960 V November 1999, 1987, 1975 Z December 2000, 1988, 1976 AY -- 1965 BZ -- 1966 CA -- 1967 DB -- 1968 VU -- 1961 WV -- 1962 XW -- 1963 YX -- 1964
