    I know it might be difficult given all the green paint but is there any Cycletruck experts willing to take a guess at what year this is. I know the motor is early 1940’s so I’m assuming it’s probably early 40’s as well. It looks to me like a previous owner painted it to look like a military bike. Would love to hear from any of you experts out there. Thanks Vince BF2A0EBB-84B5-4CF3-B708-18E616BBA624.jpeg 5DABFAA8-1EF2-4F77-B0CD-336D1916D5D9.jpeg 65708C22-8230-4C35-91E7-073EAA4D1934.jpeg

    That’s kind of what I thought as well but I’m not sure what the differences were between the E and F engines.

    The chassis is not a Schwinn made cycle truck. Ross or someone like them did those. I am blanking on the right name. Roger

    D and E models were friction drive. F was first with belt drive. Low numbers of these produced until the more common H and J versions.

    I was able to get a few more photos. It is a Roadmaster as Whizzerbug indicated. More than likely prewar given the Whizzer model F motor. Vince
