Default Re: can anyone help me id this bike?

Ican't believe it doesn;t have SOME identifying logo- what do the five letters say on the top?

How about the downtube decal?

Does the chainguard say anything beyond "Custom"?

The saddle and the pedals look like things Schwinn- but I can't say they are exclusive- is there a make on the sadlle?

What do the tires say? I think Schwinn may have used an angled rim like that. Judging by the chromed fenders, i'm thinking the later half of the 50's to the dawn of the '60's- just an educated guess- it's just a few years before I'd know otherwise. Anway- it's over 50 years old probably.

It's an unusual frame, and should be nice restored. I'd probably put all newer things except the frame and crank maybe- just because you can get more modern alloy components.

The racks are intersting- Is that a front rack too? Looks like a newspaper boy's hauler.
