    Also, the catalogs mean nothing. A customer could order damn near anything they wanted. Catalog pictures were just examples.

    I’m not a purist, but I never said anything about building it as a Panther. You made this same point in my thread regarding the bike I built for my friend. I’m building it the way I like, if you insist on fitting it into a model name or number call it an equipped Hornet or D19. The year of the...

    So none of you keyboard commandos want to step up & save this precious paint? This must be the only website on the entire web where grown men are concerned about the paint job on a girls bicycle. Not enough to do anything about it, just enough to complain that someone else should. Y’all must be...

    If someone locally wants to trade for another prewar women’s frame and fork, or pay shipping and packaging costs both ways I’m cool with that. Otherwise it’s going to the powdercoaters with a set of hoops in a couple of weeks. I’m building a rider for my sons girlfriend. Edit: I’ll take a...

    She wants it black so the paint is coming off. I’m taking measurements and photos so stencils can be made in this pattern though.

    I’ve never seen this pattern on a Schwinn frame before. Doesn’t show up in the 1941 catalog either. Perhaps it was a bike made by Schwinn for another company? Does anyone have any insight?

    Yes, Chinese/Harbor Freight dies will only work one time if you’re lucky.
