Posted by: C. Riley TITLE: MISC: Beginner with a rough Schwinn
Sorry for the ignorance but I~m just starting out and would appreciate any help at all. I have a rough Schwinn to restore. What is it middle weight,light weight???
It has 26 X 1 3/4 tires. Single speed rear hub. The serial number on the back is R37234. Thanks you very much for any help or references!!!

Here are two pre-1957 serial #~s in which may help you to determine the exact year of your Schwinn: R01452-R99999 from 1955, or R25623-R38316 from 1956. Good luck!

That serial on rear dropout indicates 1956. Middleweight is the term used for that tire size. Ain~t nothing light about it.
