Hi, Tim---

This is a partial response to your question. While I haven't gone over the Schwinn manuals in detail, easier to obtain than one is Glenn's Complete Bicycle Manual (1973, Crown: New York), LC # 70-185100, by Clarence W. Coles and Harold T. Glenn, which was "distilled" from the Schwinn manual. A nice hardcover book, they can often be had for a couple of bucks on ebay, from online used bookstores. Consider it the "lite" version of the Schwinn manual. But as for the real deal, I'll let others speak to that.

Cheers,
