Ok so which do you want a straight bar or a DX? I'm assuming you are talking prewar. Unless you are doing a klunker/custom/rat it is much cheaper to buy a complete bike. V/r Shawn

Wore out three sets of tires already!
Some additional info:
Here are two DX frames, the top is a 1941 prewar which has the chain tensioners on the rear axle hangers. The bottom bike is a 1949 postwar model. The chain tensioners were dropped from the design after the war.
You’ll find the prewar frames are much costlier than postwar, more supply of postwar available.
You can tell a DX by the slight curve of the lower of the two top bars, a straightbar, like your pic, is as flat as a yardstick.
Here’s a DX thread: https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/☆-dx-thread-☆.146618/

Probably a couple hundy. Like was previously posted anytime you start hunting prewar the price goes up. @onecatahula had a frame and fork recently.

Yep thought I explained that earlier and another person even posted examples of a DX. A DX is not a Straightbar.

Cruisin' on my Bluebird
Straight bar frame = middle bar is perfectly straight
DX frame = middle bar is slightly curved

No such animal as a DX Straightbar. They are 2 different frames.

But, if you found a prewar frame of either style for $100, you did good.
