Hello Experts and fellow Schwinn balloon bike lovers with knowldege! Among some of my bike projects is a deluxe springer fork 1948 Schwinn Autocycle, which I'm working on and I have some questions?
1. What plating is correct on the seatpost D clamp...chrome? Cad? Nickle? Initially, I would...
A set of crusty, bent, rusted, fenders for early Schwinn Autocycle or Cycleplane. Braces are original and correct. These will take some work to make right or you could use them on a crusty original/rat bike. Does not have rivets or wire holders on front fender. Please check your application and...
Back in the late 40s/early 50s, was the deluxe reflector riveted to the fenders on post war Autocycles and early Phantoms? If not, what was used to attach the deluxe reflector to the fender? Pictures would be helpful!
I'd love an original but I'd be making payments on that. I may even on a repop depending what they fetch these days, but I wanna get my feelers out there to see what's available at what cost.
The prewar B10, DX, and Cantilever models have different frames and other differences that are pretty obvious.
But when it comes to the straight bars, what is the difference between the prewar Schwinn straight bar models for "Motorbike" and "Autocycle"?
Is there a difference in the frame, such...
dual delta silverray headlights with repro bracket for the Schwinn autocycle/ranger champion with truss rod fork. typical pock mark zits to the chromed finish. be resolved that these would be best left on an original patina'd bike. re-chroming these never seems to work or look decent. great set...
26 skip tooth morrow hub with an autocycle rear rim, rim is free of major dents. Color looks to be very good, I cleaned a few areas and the chrome looks pretty good, definitely covered in some house paint. Ther hub might need some fine tuning. Stamped f3 36 13 . Asking 125 plus ship obo
Here’s a dual light setup used on prewar schwinns. Motorbikes, autocycles. The truss rod mount is OG from what I was told. Lights are pretty nice Dual silveray with glass lenses. Asking 500shipped or best offer.
For sale is my 1941 bd Goodrich cantilever project. Includes all that is pictured. Great start for an autocycle or something if someone wanted to go that route. Has crappy brazing on bottom bracket but I'm not clear if that isn't factory as I know of some that did have pretty bad welding jobs...
Came across this prewar Schwinn the other day and brought it home. Autocycle but the serial numbers are funny. Could it be left over prewar parts assembled post war that were already stamped? I will pull crank this weekend for date there. Looks un touched. Any help would be great.
This bike has been discussed before, but I've become more curious as to how rare that it might be.
I found this bike on Craigslist about three years ago.
This is the oldest picture that I have found. It was posted on TheCabe in 2011:
This is what it looked like when I bought it:
I'm looking for a nice original paint 1938 or 1939 Schwinn Motorbike, must have all original painted parts. Big stacks of cash and partial trades ready to make a deal for the right bike. I'm looking for a keeper here, something I can obsess over for years to come.
Thanks for the read and...
Pretty sure this is a Chuck Leipham Saddle Shop restoration.
Not glued, good stitching, good stamp.
Some small paint chipping/scratching here and there.
Milsco decal a bit foggy.
Adjustment bolt is a replacement but works. It's inside the seat tube anyway, doesn't show..
Rescued this beauty from a chain of collectors with the intention of keeping it. Only moving it on because I found a black/red 46 and I am out of room. S2 wheels, AS pedals, Script seat post, all in amazing condition.
Key locking springer, horn and light work great. Was sold to me as a complete...
I have a 1950 B507 sans the fenders. As I understand it the bike is essentially the same as the B607 except without all the bells and whistles. To help my search for the fenders, I’m looking for pictures of the correct front and rear fenders (same as B607), i.e. color and graphics with the...
Are the handlebars on this bike factory with drilled holes for the wiring? I like the wide bars but was wondering if I’m going to need to drill holes if necessary....if I can find a decent pair of handlebars. I have the standard Autocycle bars.

Was going to build this bike up but figured it would be better to just add the parts to my newly acquired liberty.
C serial number. Frame has grounding screw and I did use scotch bright on the frame so it needs paint quick!
Wheels look OG. Same profile as my other 2 motorbikes. I stripped a...

Tank has been repainted, but is a 41tank. Not sure if the front tabs showed up in pics, everything else is original paint. Front fender was a Truss fender but has been modified for the Springer fork. I have the original front fender without any holes that I can swap with this one with a price...
Well picked up a few bikes this weekend, and this is one of them. House painted all to hell. I was able to get the paint scheme after stripping a little bit off and with Maskedo’s help believe it to be the BFG paint scheme. The paint is thick and nasty. And not much Og paint under. So I’ll be...
Several people have asked about the condition of the other parts that have not been unpacked.
I was hoping to not have to repack each piece.
But I can see, from the questions I am receiving, that I am going to have to completely unpack and unwrap everything to make sure nothing else got...
Resurrection/restoration of an Indiana Craigslist 'barn find' Henderson-badged last year Super Deluxe

1951 Straightbar Autocycle in incredible condition. Purchased from a well known So Cal Whizzer restorer

Original locking modified double duty fork, aluminum fenders, killer original pogo seat. All original parts except the speedo lens.
There are the hard to find twist lock bezel version. The chrome in cones is good, hard to find fluted lenses, reflectors in very good condition. Cons: each lens has a chip. One cone has a dent near the bracket holes (not visible when mounted), and a small ding in one side. Both bezels has some...
Basically, for my own entertainment, I kept track of this on EBay. Granted, this is by the piece.
$2056- Springer fork
$266- Razor stem
$350- Wheels & Tires
$100- Chain ring
I was saving this tank for a project but unforeseen circumstances makes me put it for sale. So if you have an original Autocycle without a tank this is your chance. These don't show up every day.

NICE Schwinn B6 for sale. Three years ago I purchased this bike from a private auction firm in PA liquidating

spent on a postwar autocycle once the buyer...
