Look Ma, No Hands!
As the title states this Schwinn Continental was just hauled out of a basement where based on the dust it had been for years. Now I have done some research on these and it appears that the continental was first made in 1946 and that records for those first few years were lost but bases on the my serial number, which appears to be D19667, and the 1948 data this could be an early 1948. If anyone can confirm that date it would be great. To help further here are some of the parts on the bike: brake pads that say Schwinn front and Schwinn rear, a "The Villiers Model De Luxe" rear hub and "The Torrington Co. No. 7" pedals. Any info you could provide would be helpful.
