I have a vintage Schwinn Traveler made approximately 1985.

I have been trying to learn more about the bike through the serial number and head badge.

The second possible location of the serial number is on the left rear dropout--the "fork end that allows the rear wheel to be removed without derailing the chain first," according to Brown's Glossary.

Look for the left dropout on the same side as the chain.

The first possible location is on the underside of the bottom bracket.

Sheldon Brown's Bicycle Glossary defines the bottom bracket as "the part of the frame around which the pedal cranks revolve." Turn the bike upside down to view it better.

Schwinn closed the Chicago plant in 1983 shortly after opening a plant in Greenville MS. The serial number SC5xxxxx indicates the frame was built in March (C) of '85 (5), and the 1025 headbadge number indicates the bike was built on the 102nd day of '85, or Friday April 12th, 1985:

Timothy Banas has a master's degree in biophysics and was a high school science teacher in Chicago for seven years.

is an American bicycle company and a bicycling history icon.

From 1948 to 1982, Schwinn pioneered its own models of cruisers, touring bikes and three-speeds, fabricating their own frames and components in-house.

However I can't seem to find difinitive information.
