The rubber bumper is new and the entire springer is completely rebuilt. I'll try lubing the pivot bolt, hopefully that's it.
The squeek seems to be in relation to the spring. Drives me crazy. Maybe it's telling me to go on a diet. I'll never be the 90 pound kid this was designed for :)...
I love my '51 Panther with the springer fork, but it squeeks!
I've tried adjusting the springer parts and spraying silicon lube (silicon to protect the rubber bumper).
What else can I do to stop the squeek???
This Texan Bicycles ad "Built for Massie by Schwinn" is from a 1946 Fort Worth phone book. I don't have the phone book, just found the pic on the interwebs.
From another Web source is this 1947 photo of the Massie Supply building advertising "Bicycles ".
GLWS! (good luck with search )
