    Serial # K72178. Estimated 1941/42 Amazing almost day glo cornflower blue and white Schwinn BF Goodrich Badged DX type 26" ladies, with as found near mint period installed New Departure D/W Blackout WW2 hubs, BFG Standard nylon War Tire Stamped tires. Bike was purchased from the original owners along with a 1945 1/2 Roadmaster now long gone. My friend who originally bought and sold the bike bought it back recently after a three year hiatus in another fantastic collection and here it is for you 3rd fresh and not on any other site. It appears as produced, an unaltered and unrestored original. Lo/no miles. Grips are not original. Horn tank, front fender not drilled for lamp. Significant issue is contained to area open fender corrosion spot as shown straightforward fixable. Look closely at images and you can see this is as built with paper still present between kickstand and frame.

    3/21 Update $776 including Bike Flights anywhere continental USA! Buy it Now before I move the decimal point.:D Shout out to Mike D Flashback Vintage Warren RI!!:cool:

    Glowing paint scheme original paint and ND Hardware, original condition as produced best girls' war era bike I've seen!
