Look Ma, No Hands!
Sorry for the slow reply. So here's the parts I can locate right now. A lot got pushed into storage when I moved house.

I have the crank set I showed you before, but I also located a late 1940s Continental crank set. It's much more worn than the converted tandem set, but it's the right set for a Continental. I also located part of a brake handle. It's just missing the clamp top. You might be able to find or make one and then you'd have a Schwinn handle. I also have a parts grade high flange single speed freewheel hub. The shell is dirty and needs to be cleaned. In the bag is an axle, and I think the cones are there too, but if I recall, the axle is somewhat stripped. You might be able to find an axle or even have one made from rod and a die set (?).

Let me know which parts you would want and I'll give you a price on the items you want.

That is a good looking New World. It could have happened originally. Check off a lot of boxes with an agreeable dealer. Nice!

What is a different between S-8 and S-6 what year the S-8 were made from the S-8 they were made in stainless steal or not any answer on this
The S-8 was extruded aluminum, and as far as I know the S-6 was chrome-plated steel after 1950, the only stainless S-6 rims I've seen have been on late '40's bikes. Both were 26 inch rims and are pictured in the 1948 catalog (see post #20 in this thread), but the catalog doesn't mention the material for the S-6, and I'm not sure why. Schwinn went to the trouble to make stainless rims, you would think they would advertise it far and wide.

Ok thank you I had a varsity mine probably it was a late 40's or a early 50's it was a schwinn new world with the badge logo schwinn with a type of feathers like a cream color or off-white with the varsity logo very small in the chain guard it had a 3 speed sturmey archer but the rims were chrome with a hump in the center 26x1.3/4 or 3/8 extra it had a locking fork plus a front drumbrake a phantom gooseneck not bad I never thought what year it was the burgundy color it was a 50's the only good thing I pitch the bike it was the phantom grips and the sprocket it is a 46 tooth like a mid-fifties Ballon sproket 4 holes...thank you

There was a three speed version of the Varsity made during the '50's, but I don't remember the exact years. They turn up once in a while, but not very often.
