    red frame is in excellent shape 21 in I beleive 

    blue frame I believe is a 19 in  see pics for measurements

    blue frame is an older model from what I can tell  from this site with a custom paint job and I dont believe the badging on the head tube is correct . maybe somone made there own creation lol . the red frame is a newer mode land badging looks to be correct  by looking on this site as well. both frames are super light .

    The blue one is definitely a bit of an oddball, but bassboat blue makes everything better. Good luck with the sales.

    What price are you asking for the Blue 19″ frame?  I assume you’re OK with shipping?  If you prefer pick-up, where are you located?

    Thanks,

    $125 each is a very fair price, especially for the blue one IMO.  If it was a 17″ I would be jumping on it.  Good luck with Sale.

    It’s got the stamped dropouts, not forged, and extruded chainstay yoke, though.

    The blue one is not a Factory IMO.  It was a standard Homegrown repainted some time ago.  The seatstays don’t look tapered either.  A sure fire answer would be a picture of the weld on the seatstay.  Homegrown’s are a single tube fully curved, but Factory frames are 2 seperate tubes (because they are tapered) that get welded together at the top.  If its a Factory, the weld beads make a “T” shape with a bead lined up with the tire.

    BBB one looks like a 97 Factory, except the top tube “S” decal is black stripe like an Underground. Plus a few extra decals and Chicage head badge.
     

    I’ve got a Factory BBB 97 and it has the cable stops on top of the top tube versus on the side like your frame.

    [/quote]I just checked my 97 Factory and compared it to my son-in-law’s HG. Never noticed that before.

    Good call on that. Probably the most subtle difference between non-factory and factory frames.

    So what does the term non factory/factory actually mean ? 
     

    thanks in advance

    As far as I know, Factory refers to the model ” Homegrown Factory” versus a regular Homegrown frame. It was a higher end model frame with higher end components. I have no idea why schwinn used the term “Homegrown Factory”. Somebody on this site probably knows.
