    Help! What Schwinn model do I have?

    Can anyone help me identify what model year is this World Sport? I'm interested in selling it but wanted to know what it is and what it could be worth. Any additional input would be appreciated!Thanks in advance!

    Oh, I don't know. I might go $15. Let's say I needed a set of headset shifters for a "history of bad ideas in bicycles" museum restoration.

    Oh, boy, 2 days home in quarantine, and the trolls are already coming out of the woodwork........

    After looking through this waste of pixels and bandwidth of a post (hey, I've got time on my hands!), I'd say it's worth a sawbuck at best, or whatever the scrap value of the steel is locally. At least your saddle isn't too high.

    part it out on ebay...

    there's always a huge demand for spoke reflectors and giant dork discs.

    Chicken levers, too! They have about $.20 of aluminum in them!

    Looks early 80s. If you look at similar bikes on web, 1981 or 1982 perhaps. And as others have said, not special or worth substantial money. But if it works, somebody can ride it. Donate it to a shelter or something.

    You'll be able to make more $ parting it out on ebay, but it will be a hassle.
    I just bought some similar shifters for my MCross bike, cause they don't make 3x9 hydraulic brake road shifters.

    ... I'm amazed that is a 10 spd, I thought they had gave it up by then. It looks like it's in really good shape, but only the guy living in the ditch would ride one now.

    The kind of rider that would buy this is what my wife and I call "DUI Guy". He lost his license and he needs something really cheap to get to the liquor store

    Not quite; a guy like that would've rotated the bars 180į up, maybe even 225į, then rode it holding the drops like a tiller.

    I think OP should post it on the other forum, maybe under Classic & Vintage or as a project back, and he/she will probably get $50 for it.

    It's comforting to have a "What Schwinn Model Do I Have?" crisis to deal with in these otherwise stressful times.

    Thanks, OP!

    PS: It's a piece of crap. Hope this helps. I did check it out to see if it might be a pre-1965 Collegiate with shifters on the top bar. Those testicle-stabbers are worth at least 10 bucks if in excellent condition.

    Ogre, although I'm trying to rein in my grammarian pedantry during the pandemic, you crossed a line.

    The proper term is "should of" not "should've" which is a contraction for "should have" which is obviously incorrect in proper English. Should of, not should have. If you don't believe me, ask cx.

    I dunno. I've never seen the word SHOULD'F.

    And my original accusation stands. Hoarding apostrophes in these pandemic times is reprehensible.

    Relax. There are plenty of apostrophes to go around. If you run out, I'll lend you some of mine. I always keep a well-stocked punctuation cellar.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to ogre again.

    Based upon my family history thereís a good chance Iíll need a new colon at some point. And my wife hasnít had a period in years, so anything you can spare would be greatly appreciated.

    Everybody should get rep'd...this is getting entertaining.




    And of course 'should of' doesn't exist. 'Should've' is correct.
