'Lil Knee Scuffer
20231028_203300.jpg
 
I'm new to this. This is my first vintage bike. It was represented to me as a 1918 e.c. Simmons Westminster. It rides pretty good. I would really appreciate any info you guys can give me about it? serial # on bottom bracket is
38 422 8 maybe 88 422 8 or even 8 422 3

Nice bike.
Looks like Schwinn truss forks, based on the forged fork crown and forged stand offs for the truss rods, (which bolt-on to the axle).
Not sure if the rest of the bike might be Schwinn also, or not?

Simmons Hardware wholesalers were supplied by various bicycle manufacturers over the years. Welcome to the CABE.

On some of these older unidentified bicycles, I like to check the profile of the rear forks, where they attach to the bottom bracket crank hanger; some are circular round tubing, and others are oval-shaped.

Maybe post a picture (not too-close) of what the serial numbers look like?
