Got a good shot of the BB shell with the serial number?

Hang on here, another one for the fleet? You need to change to 'The Bike A Week Guy". 🤣 That looks like it will clean up nicely and make a cool rider. (Just like the last 3,😉
Might be time for the pre 1960 Schwinn 12 step program...

This is what I have been looking for. I had to buy the 1941 girls bike, it was only 40 bucks. The B6 was only $150. The '50 Traveler needed me to save it.... it looked so sad all rusted. I should have passed on the 50 girls bike since the stem won't come out of the fork. In my defense I passed on a bunch of 60's lightweights I was considering. Pretty sure I am done for now.

Well I wasn't ready for a J serial making it even later! So the head tube and tubing joints are EF also, can't tell for sure in those 8' shots? Most likely a 43 issue if they are, and I hope your crank is dated. 🧐
1943. Cool. I'll just go with that. I took it out today after lubing the chain and oiling the rear hub which brought back functioning brakes. I don't plan on doing anything to it other than ride it for now. I'll have to wait on checking the crank until after I finish my Traveler. Thanks for all the info and links.

Try PineSol or other pine cleaner on the stuck stem. When I was preserving my Pierce the stem would not budge. I spent two weeks with PB Blaster, Kroil, WD40, etc. light propane heat, heat gun. Somewhere I saw someone reference pine oil cleaner for freeing rusted parts. Turned it upside down and dropped some in, next day put the forks in a vice and gave a bars a twist, presto. Now maybe it was all the other stuff but knows? I should do some experiments with rusty items in pine cleaner..

I'm the Wiz, and nobody beats me!
Only one other J99000 on the list and there's a big gab between these and the next sets of J numbers that are quite a bit lower. I have to assume your frame has all the electro-forged joints as the pieces with early J numbers. I'd like to see the bottom bracket on a J war time Cycle Truck to see if they are different.
This is another one @Miq should add to the list. 😉

bought a set of original black paint pre war fenders from a fellow caber today. so I'll be looking good but not correct. I'll still keep an eye out for a single brace rear fender. I have found the best way to get a part you need is buy a close replacement, then the exact one will come along soon after for half price.

.. I need a pre war brace for my matching crummy front fender if anyone has one. I have a '41 girls bike with no fenders I may use my new black fenders on it and keep the rusty ones on this bike.
