'Lil Knee Scuffer
Just picked this up in an estate auction. Would like to know what year it might be and wondering about wrong parts. I have not seen that kind of chain ring on other online BF Goodrich bikes. Also wondering about that cup shaped washer on the rear drive side hub. The pedals are obviously not original. Anything else? Will I have any trouble getting replacement spokes at a local bike store? 2 are missing.

Sorry, I will try to get the serial numbers next week.

Sprocket is wrong... looks like a Murray built sprocket. I'm guessing that dish shaped thinger was someones replacement washer that they had on hand. It's a schwinn so check out the serial number and you can get the year off that pretty easily.

It's post-war but still wearing drop center rims, so I'm guessing '45 to '48, if the wheels are original.

the thing about spokes on an old bike is you may find half of them no longer spin when you go to true the wheel. as for replacements at the bike shop that should be no problem as they cut and thread them to order. found that out when one of my spokes had no threads last time I bought spokes at the bike shop

I expect some spokes to be frozen, and I can live with that. This is going to be an everyday rider so I don’t need it to be perfect. We’ll see how it goes. Thanks for everbody’all help
