Good point. My experience, which is plenty, is that the older straightbar Schwinns are all the same. They are beautifully made and completely consistant in the tank area. The Worksman frame has proven to have a fair amount of manufacturing tolerence. The tank area can vary between frames, some being loose and others tight. I do not have any experience with the Schwinn cantilever frames in this respect.
