HOW TO ORDER

BICYCLE ORDERS-

should be placed through your Schwinn Distributor rather for direct factory drop-shipment or for delivery from Distributor’s warehouse.

PRICES AND QUANTITY DISCOUNTS-

May be obtained from your schwinn Distributor.

SPECIAL DATING TERMS –

Are available at certain times of the year to Schwinn Dealers who maintain satisfactory credit relations. You may obtain full information from your Schwinn Distributor or write the factory.

MODEL NUMBERS-

Please be sure to show the complete model number including the dash number suffix (-1, -2, ect.) to insure receiving the proper bicycle with the exact coaster brake or rear hub you want. For example, write “S11-3 Speedster” or S11-4 Speedster” – not “S11 Speedster w/3-speed.”

STANDARD EQUIPMENT-

Pleas DO NOT list items on your order which are standard on the model you want. For example, if you order “F18-3 Mark IV Jaguar w/front caliper brake (which is standard on that model) it may cause confusion in processing your order. We will not know whether you intended to order an “extra” and perhaps listed the wrong model number –or did not realize the F18-3 included a front caliper. Please list only the “extras” you want.
