Cruisin' on my Bluebird
So this bike, with a December 54 serial number, is likely one of the first Deluxe Hornets to roll off the line, and as such there could have been some confusion on what bikes to use the Schwinn Spitfire badge to indicate the cheap version vs the the regular Schwinn badge which were probably supposed to go on the Deluxe Hornets?

What year did the Spitfire become its own bike model, googleing Spitfire brings up bikes with the name on the chain guard and not on the head badge?
I have a later Spitfire that i believe is a 55 or 56 as the frame has a plate welded over the #"s and i don't know for certain of the year.. Good luck with your search.. RideOn.. Razin...
