Can anyone help us determine the year of this CWC Roadmaster? We found it at a scrap yard and saved it. Beginning on a full restoration of it. It appears to have been burgandy with cream fenders and orange stripes.
Thats a beautiful bike! I can't tell you the exact year of it but if you post the serial number we have members that can pin it down exactly, in my opinion it looks late 30s-early 40s If the paint looks salvageable I would not repaint, give it a good wash first with warm soapy water and see exactly what you have, remember, a bicycle is only new once Another thing I can tell you is that a ladies bike in general is not too high on a collectors list, they often get parted out to finish a mens bike. I hope you won't part this one out, it looks pretty complete and in decent condition.
Serial numbers are best to help with identification. Actually I have the same types of rims on my '47 Roadmaster and I was wondering if they were correct for Roadmaster. Now I can assume they were. Thanks.
