I researched this via the serial number stamped on the frame near the rear wheel. It is a 1963 Schwinn Co-Ed, it has peddle back Bendix Brakes. It does not appear to have the kick-back 2-speed available on some of them nor the hand brakes. Everything appears to be original including the peddles as they have the Schwinn Plus (Cross) on them. The paint is in pretty rough shape, but overall I think it looks good for a 48yr old Bike.
I found it on the side of the road with a free tag on it and immediately snatched it up. after adding air to the tires it was ready to ride. In a perfect world I'd like to get it restored, but I'll probably just ride it like it is.
