If, it is a presta valve, use the adapter that should be with the pump. If, it is missing just buy an adapter, usually $1.00

I need to figure out what size tire and tube my Schwinn unicycle needs didn't have tire

Take the bike rim to a bike repair shop and they should be able to measure it and get you the right one. Most time if they see the make and model they can tell.

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.

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.

I found a Schwinn bicycle and wanted to know the year was told to post the serial number on the bottom of the frame it is w921336

Schwinn bikes made in the last several decades were made at many different overseas factories, and serial numbers varied. Look for a date code on the head tube or badge (where the fork goes through the frame. That is more helpful for date of manufacture. Would be helpful had you told us the model of the bike.

How do you find age of schwinn bike

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.

I purchased a Schwinn bicycle pump, but I'm having trouble determining how to use it to inflate my standard bike tires. The instructions that came with the pump assume that I know the name of the type...

There are only two types - presta and schrader. If the instructions named them you could just Google them for descriptions and all kinds of other answers. The schrader is what we think of as the automotive style.

Back to the search engines, "how to..." usually finds answers, such as "how to inflate a presta valve tube".

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

How do you use the schwinn bicycle aluminum frame pump?

Do you have a presta or schrader valve on you bike tube? A schrader is a standard valve, presta has a little nut that has to be loosened to add air. Your pump has both heads or adaptors (I don't know which model you have). You should have instructions with your pump to explain how to use it, if not go to and you can read all of the instructions, no use me repeating what you can read on your own.
