Cool. Looks like the frame is correct for the stand over method, but his seat is way the f up there. Or maybe it's the trousers that give the impression that his crotch is near his knees. :p

I like my seat high enough to stretch out my legs. :D
I painted the original tank and rack after repairing major damage.
I guess you could call it a partial Restroy job?.
I got the stensils on ebay and the paint on the web from a guy named Arron(I think?). I guess the blue fades to the lighter color after 77 years.

The frame blue looks like what Schwinn called later the Spitfire Blue.

the seat is probably where it needs to be for proper ergonomics. I have found that most vintage bike people put the seat where it looks best and suffer along as they ride. proper seat height is when your knees are just slightly bent at the bottom of the pedal stroke. with a low seat you are using all the wrong muscles

Autocycleplain has it all figured out. proper seat height, a narrow saddle and pedals with some grip. you must also be a roadie or mountain bike guy like me

That's where I always felt the most comfortable and why that's the way I do it.
