Schwinn 734s Strength System: Instructions, Selling
January 13, 2011 5:41 PM   Subscribe

Where can I find an official manual for a Schwinn 734s Strength System? Googling brings up some crapware sites, the Schwinn site has nothing about it, it was bought many years ago and I can't seem to find it a manual.

We want to take it apart and move it and it's kind of a monster. I found this online but the site seems pretty dodgy to me and the price seems high. Experiences finding replacement manuals or taking apart giant scary athletic equipment welcome. Experiences selling equipment like this also welcome, if I put this on craigslist, would a buyer want it taken apart first or would they want to see it up and working first?

You probably already have these exploded diagrams for the chest press and weight stack.

There's a pdf on this page for the Schwinn 701s manual that shows how to assemble that machine. It's a pretty different gym, but maybe it's a start? The guy who posted it says he e-mailed Schwinn, and it was obviously faxed to him and then he scanned it in.

This person has the system for sale, including the manual (see description). Maybe you could email him/her and see if they would be willing to scan it and send it to you.

Response by poster: Thanks for checking gingerest, I've gone ahead and emailed Schwinn as well but have not heard back yet. Amyms, I've emailed that seller as well, thanks. So, we'll see. It's interesting that that seller says it's easy to take apart and put together, because it looks like brain surgery to me.
