Posted by: Shaun St Onge TITLE: BALLOON:   Schwinn serial # 3700
I have recently acquired an original Whizzer (model J) on a Schwinn frame (Barn Fresh!). I believe the age of this bike to be 1948, however when searching for the Schwinn serial number archives I cannot find my serial number listed anywhere. The serial number on the frame (found on the frame underneath the cranks) is # 3700. Assuming this number follows suit with the others like it on the charts, it must be a ~WZ~ frame. I am slightly confused as the numbers in 1948 stop before my serial and in 1949 the numbers pick up after my serial. Why is there a gap and what is the actual year of this bike? If anyone has any information for me on this it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your reply but I am still slightly confused as the 1948 numbers seem to run until 3447 and in 1949 they pick up at 3825. My number is between 1948 and 1949.

Schwinn serial numbers of that era cannot easily be confirmed.
Records were lost in a fire at Schwinn in the 1940s.
