Posted by: Randy TITLE: AGE / VALUE: Schwinn American Delux
I found a 1954 Schwinn American Delux in a neighbors basement. It has the fender light and the horn tank in good shape. I would like to purchase it and restore as a first project. It is has some rust, but is really fairly nice. I have no idea what I should offer her for the bike. Any help would be appreciated.

It all depends on the bike condition. First though, I don~t think the American was made in 1954. http://www.trfindley.com/flschwinn_1951_1959/1954.html Schwinn serial numbers were repeated so they can not id the age in and of themselves.
Post pictures on http://www.schwinnbike.com/heritage/forumdisplay.php?forumid=4
and give serial number and serial number location.
