Anyone have any idea how the paint got damaged around the horn ? , i was thinking maybe someone lubed the horn button & the chemical ruined the paint ???????

But the light is incorrect. Should be a bullet light painted in the same paint scheme.

My guess is that as the batteries went bad,the acidic fumes escaped around the horn button & damaged the paint

My first thought was the riders pants leg rubbing on the tank, but it is only on one side so I doubt that theory is correct.

Some bikes in the mid 50s had what Schwinn called “detachable kickstands.”
