Can't really see the serial number, but I'm going to guess a '36 or '37.
You're probably getting private messages about that seat right about now.

Going to try and work the serial number harder tomorrow. They are very shallow. Trying to not make them disappear. And yep. It's a "hot seat".

I do not normally collect bikes... My first 2. are this one and a 38 Schwinn D97XE Christmas Special.

I like it.

Here's one I just brought home, serial B44621, no bump seat post clamp, no center stand stops, looks like an Atwood kickstand and they took off my headlight before I got there to pick it up.

Thanks ,so I take it that it would not have came with a tank, I read something I believe on this thread about lost ( as in haven't came across any) B & C serial numbers and D series starting after the war,I havea couple of more pics in another thread, where I started scrubbing it clean.
ps I am pretty upset about the streamers being gone :)

Something's off, I'm reading that the war department limited the number of bicycle MFG's to two Columbia & Huffman in Sept of1942 although there's no holes in the headtube for a badge, how many 1943 bikes could CWC have made, unless they catalouged unsold bikes built before Sept 42 ,as 43's?

Any estimate on year and model of this bike? I have searched and searched and seem's to me something with the bike is a little off as in items seem to be mixed on the bike. I am also new to the restoration game so probably my issue. Appreciate the help!

That’s a postwar bike. Might look odd because it’s a 24” model. Post a pic of the serial number.

I would say 1946 as it doesn’t have dropstand tabs.

Working on a few '36 Roadmasters, figured I should add the serial numbers to this list as they are odd, both are double bar roadsters one has a Hawthorne badge with horizontal screw holes, other has vertical Roadmaster size screw holes, both have small paisley chain rings and close chain stays with off center crank spacing, "V" forks etc.
Serial numbers are - get this:
X6820 : Vertical screw holes for Roadmaster badge
Z7995 : Hawthorne horizontal screws
maybe these are "Pre A" serial numbers or something, to borrow an early Porsche term?
by the way I'm looking for early chain guards for these, a 19 holer and a paisley hole, either or, one of each maybe
Thanks!

Hi all. This is a wonderful site. I pick this up Friday for my fiancee to use at a local vintage bicycle ride/show (just missed this year's). What year would you estimate it, and what is correct/ wrong with it as it sits, other than the speedometer? Thanks!

It was built between 50-54. Serial number will tell exact date.

The seat, chain guard and grips are wrong. Rims might be too.

Like @BillMetric above I am wondering about the earliest CWC serial numbers, as well as the X & Z numbers.

Here is a cool badged Non Pareil Bicycle Works St Louis USA SPEED Double Bar Roadster carcass I recently got. It has a very low A serial # with center punched dots...

Any insight would be appreciated!
