    Here's my 46 B-507 with a springer and drum brake. Original other than the tires and seat. IMG_20170825_150420421.jpg

    Very nice 2 tone green bike! If you ever want to part with it, I could be interested.

    "46..... I have an affinity for that year for some reason - Here are the residents of that vintage that live with us:

    And the Wall Hangers!
    B-6 and Straightbar (not yet built) These all were way less than complete pieces.

    It's because it's the first year of all the new postwar innovations come together! Built in tapered stand, standard head tube size for boys and girls, chain guard mounts, seat post clamp etc. I like the one year only tapered stand and raised letter seat post clamp. Barry

    Hey bobdenver1961! I am curious to know what you know about that rack on this bike. I have an identical one on my 49 schwinn but i dont believe it to be schwinn, i assume that its some period correct aftermarket piece. Any info you may know would be awesome!

    Thanks!

    Hey guys! I'm looking for a set of fenders that will fit this bike. A normal post war rear fender will not fit? Thanks, Barry

    Picked this one up, lying on the ground, pretty stripped, at Dudley, a couple of shows ago. Originally bought it for the head badge to use on another bike. Saw something in it, oxalic acid bath brought the color back up, I really like this bike.
