Putting together a 1948 Schwinn thanks to ZE52414. It has truss rod forks and a LaSalle badge. Also has what I think maybe the early S2 rims with out the factory markings. Not sure if these are stock to this bike. Trying to find out if it was just put together using these parts from another bike or is stock. Anyway will make a super sweet ride!

Nice bike ! Looks like you have everything there for a nice rider.I'm wondering if that is a "fat bar" frame---- I just can't tell for sure from the photo---- tubular truss rod forks are cool--- I have 2 of them. Post pix when you are ready.

It's a fat bar frame or straight bar as I know it. It should come out nice. Will post more as it comes along.

I'm in Fort Collins. Have any "less-desirable" project rides you'd let go? ;)

That bike's going to be bada$$

Fellow Colorado bike nut! I'm scrounging up what I can, don't have anything at this moment. There's a bike swap this coming up weekend 4/7/2018 in Lakewood. There should be a mess load of good projects and riders available up there!
