Looks like you've got a good start, I like those wheels! Are you trying to return this to original or just getting it back to being a rider? If you just want to make it a rider that will probably be quicker and easier, and then you can use it while you look for more original parts. You're in Connecticut? @SirMike1983 is somewhere in that general area and he has experience with these, check out his "Spring Cleaning" thread: https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/more-spring-cleaning.108491/

My stash for these bikes isn't what it is for my English ones. Parts are not easy to find.

I don't have any brake handles, handlebars, or stems that would be original. Originally it would have had the "flip flop" Schwinn stem, the moustache style flat bars and the Schwinn chrome brake levers. Unfortunately, you're looking at a couple hundred dollars worth of parts there, alone. Those are all expensive parts. The bars alone are probably affordable, but that stem and a good pair of Schwinn brake levers will not be cheap. I wish had some of that stuff because I'd sell it... but I don't have the really top notch parts like that.

Calipers would be "Schwinn Built", and you can sometimes find them at a decent price. They're nothing special in terms of functioning, but they are also not that easy to find on the market these days. I don't have any complete calipers in my stash. I probably have a few pieces of one, but not a whole decent one at least. I used up my last set to restore a prewar New World a couple years ago. I do have some of the later aluminum "Schwinn approved" from the 1960s, but those wouldn't be correct. I believe I still have a handful of the original brake pads, in varying conditions. But you may want fresh pads if you are riding a lot.

I have a converted 1940s 3-piece Schwinn tandem crank set that started on a tandem and ended up being modified for a single seater. But again, it's not Continental concentric ring type, it's a clover type that takes cotter pins. It might work as a stand-in, but it's probably not what you want if you really want the post-war Continental "look". I might have a bottom bracket set consisting of cones and spindle. You'll want new bearing balls if you're going to re-build. I'd have to look in the boxes.

I may also have the shell of a high-flange single speed freewheel hub around. It's the basic New World and not the Paramount type though.

Let me know if any of this is helpful, but I suspect you want more original stuff. Just be prepared to pay the big bucks for the handlebars, stem, and brake levers if you find them.

The zip code looks like Stratford to me. Hopefully it's flatter down there than here in the northwest hills. Give me a 3-speed (at least) all the way up here.

I'll look this week in my parts bin and see what I have. I have that crank set still, but I may have some other bottom bracket parts if you need those as well.
