Dang...I have twin boys...how cool would consecutive numbers be?
This is the closest I've seen. I think it needs a side by side for posterity .
Man I love that you did this photo.

Latest one yet, and the first picture with chrome fenders. Bike looks like it's NOS, thanks for posting !
Long time lurker and haven't posted in a while. I have a blue KS frame that a buddy gave me years ago. Its just the frame and matching KS guard. I've since found a matching radiant blue fork and extended/grafted on a longer steer tube. The hard part was trying to find the fenders. Due to the larger geometry of the frame the fender mounting hole at the seat stay bridge aligns at a slightly different position radially on the fender (if that makes sense). Its like 3/8-1/2" off from a reg size middleweight fender.
The black KS above with the chrome fenders reminded me of this... quirky fun fact; Twinn (Tandem) middleweight fenders have the same hole position and fit a KS frame perfectly.

That IS great info! I knew there was a reason I shouldn't have sold that tandem . Thanks for the info!
What is the frame size for the Kings? Are all 23"?
Good question. Measured from middle of the bottom bracket crank hole to top of the seat tube, the standard cantilever Schwinn frame is approximately 18.5 inches. The king size frames are 20".
