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.
