The model is written on the frame or on the chainguard. If the frame has been repainted the model doesn't matter much, as any value has been severely reduced, especially if it was not a professional paint job.

I have a Schwinn ladies deluxe varsity bicycle with the serial number HU516988. Can anyone tell me the year (and month) it was produced, and whether it was made in Chicago or in Taiwan?

I don't know that the Varsity was made anywhere but Chicago, but could be wrong. A brief search tells me yours is newer than 1982, but I don't have the time to pin down exact date. Some Schwinns have a date code on the head badge or head tube and a separate serial number. Google "Schwinn serial number" (or date code) and do some research yourself, or check this link for more info:

So i typed in the serial number and it came back as a 1977 Chicago that the style of the bike

No, it's the place and year of manufacture. the bike pictured is a Schwinn Varsity. In good shape, but no great value. the style/model is normally printed on the top tube.

How can I find out the year of my schwinn bicycle

The first bit of information is the location of the serial number on the frame. There are 4 places it could be. The most common is right below the headbadge on the right side. These bikes were made in Chicago and have a oval black on white headbadge. If the headbadge is red and black. It was made after 1987 and there is no catalog for these bikes. If the serial number is on the left rear dropout and the headbadge is black on white oval, then your bike is an older one made before 1968. You can check the manufacturer date by searching "Schwinn date codes" on the internet
